A new D+M research studio for Fall 2019 and Spring 2020 led by Louis-Charles Tiar and Maralie Armstrong.

Moving beyond the traditional framework of author and audience let us consider artworks as totems around which social connections emerge. Networked and interactive media allow artists to actively shape intra-audience connections in a way that static, material art objects never could. This research studio attempts to fuse the social sciences, network theory, and the seemingly limitless possibilities of server, web and interface programming.
