Master Study Interface Cultures at University of Art and Design in Linz 
(4 semester)

The Interface Culture masters degree program, founded by media artists 
Christa Sommerer and Laurent Mignonneau, is an artistic-scientific study 
to educated media artists and media researchers in creative and 
innovative interface and interaction design.

The study lasts two years and concentrates on project-oriented and 
theory-based training in interactive digital media, combining art with 
research, the development of projects and prototypes with scholarly 

Subjects thought include: interactive art, interaction design, game 
design, tangible interfaces, auditory interfaces, fashionable 
technologies, wearable devices, intelligent ambiences, sensor 
technologies, telecommunication and new experimental forms of 
human-machine, human-human and machine-machine interactions.  

Artistic expressions include among others: interactive art, net art, 
software art, robotic art, sound art, noise art, games and story 
telling, mobile art as well as new hybrid areas like genetic art, bio 
art, space art and nano art.

A specialty of the program is its strong collaboration with the Ars 
Electronica in Linz, where students can show their projects on a yearly 
basis and thus get in contact with the top experts of the media art and 
design field. Previous projects of student works at Ars Electronica 2005 
can be found at: http://www.interface.ufg.ac.at/Ars2005/index.php
