Art + Technology

Artists in California have been combining art and technology for many decades.

These artistic forms of investigation are more relevant and compelling than ever before, particularly in the Bay Area with its culture of technological innovation, emphasis on social media, and DIY ethos. Students with an emphasis in Art and Technology at SFAI learn the technical, conceptual, historical, and theoretical skills needed to produce contemporary art using technological forms such as time-based and networked media, digital media, audio, programming, and electronics.

Inherently interdisciplinary, this emphasis offers students the opportunity to explore the ways that technology has infused traditional approaches to art-making, as well as creating possibilities for the invention of new media practices.
