Application Winter Workshops 2022: from October 2021


Videodocumentation, digital animation, creative coding, artificial intelligence, and game design are digital formats that have changed and will continue to change the practice of communication and its design. The Institute Digital Communication Environments has been exploring digital design tools and the digital channels of communication since the mid-1980s. The implications of technological developments and their impact on communication, design, and art have been at the center of its exploration. The experimental diversion of technological achievements is considered as much an outcome of the debate as the development of sustainable models of their application.
