Why a Hybrid Lab?

All around the college, in closets and basements, outposts of technology practice have been emerging. Outside CCA a growing maker movement of interactive technologies in art and design exists. These technologies are becoming more powerful and more accessible for the nontechnology-trained artist. 

Enabling the hacker mentality, this is a place where sparks become concepts and concepts become prototypes as quickly as possible. Interactive technology is emerging as a creative material in every division at the college -- at both the undergraduate and graduate levels:

Architecture: Contemporary structures

DesignIndustrial DesignFashion DesignFurnitureGraphic Design, and Interaction Design

Fine ArtsFilmAnimation, and Sculpture

Humanities & Sciences: Science and math curricula
