MAi - MASTER IN ADVANCED interaction
PROGRAM ORGANIZATION The program objectives are to build knowledge in the field of interactivity through prototypes, installations, exhibitions, and publications. Expose students to new methods and digital tools related to the exploration of interactivity. And prepare students for the relevant professional avenues related to interactive arts, user experience, and object agency. While the primary activities of the course are in Barcelona, Spain, we look to international events to form part of our discourse and inspiration. From the myriad of international interaction festivals, to one in a lifetime events, each year there are unique opportunities for visiting relevant events and to experience new frontiers in interaction. Seminar sessions are designed to transmit specific domains of knowledge from relevant experts involved in practice and academia. Seminars will include technical sessions involving software and software development, physical computing tutorials, and most importantly, applied theory sessions where a key topic is chosen which integrates acquired knowledge with theoretical concepts in
interaction. The objective of the seminar sessions is to provide a comprehensive knowledge base to support the studentâ€™s ambitions in the research studios. Candidates for the Master of Advanced Interaction have a deep curiosity to explore the creative limits afforded by current technologies, have prior academic or professional experience with interactive arts and a desire to combine this experience The Master of Advanced Interaction is organized around three terms, beginning in October and concluding in June of the subsequent year. Each term includes a Research Studio and a series of Seminars and related events. IS.
