Art and Technology Studies | ATS at SAIC

Art and Technology Studies is a fine art department focused on the use of technology as an art medium. In its current configuration, ATS teaches numerous courses.

The fusion of these two areas unified the department and established the foundation of its experimental ethos.

Unlike other disciplines that use technology at the service of traditional forms, faculty and students in Art and Technology Studies employ technology itself as their medium. Works produced in ATS are often time-based, interactive, immersive, multi-sensory or hybrids of retro and cutting-edge technologies.

In its current configuration, ATS teaches numerous courses in, but not limited to, the following concentrations:

  • Creative Code & Machine Learning
  • AR, VR & Games
  • Kinetics & Electronics
  • Light
  • Audio
  • Bio Art

ATS also teaches exploratory areas such as Poetic Systems, Olfactory Art, and History & Theory.
