The BA (Hons) Fine Art: Computational Arts at the University of the Arts London (UAL) sees coding as a material that can be used in fine art computational practice. It will enable you to explore how computational creativity and artificial intelligence can be applied to the arts. It offers you the opportunity to invent new interactive ways of working with sound and moving image.
What to expect
- A space where you can explore emergent research areas such as human computer interaction, artificial intelligence and machine learning. These open-up controversial ethical debates around digital citizenship, ‘the cyborg’ and big data. You will be encouraged to engage with these in order to articulate and contextualise your practice in an ethical, relevant and sustainable way

- To be introduced to the artistic potential of immersive media and machine learning
- To explore areas such as physical computing and advanced visualisation
- To look at key terms that underpin ideas and contexts relevant to computational media within contemporary art and culture
- Project-based teaching that will introduce you to essential creative attributes such as leadership, independence and resilience
- The opportunity to co-create with software students from the CCI
- To have access to Camberwell's shared workshops that include printmaking, photography, film, moving image, digital, plastic, ceramics, wood and metalwork.
