In the Digital Studio, students learn that just because the world is digital doesn’t mean it can’t be one of creative expression and beauty. Workstations equipped with Wacom Cintiq tablets give students the chance to experiment with the balance between traditional visual arts and digital effects, in a studio space designed for sharing, critiquing, and learning together.
The Center for Innovation and Design (CID) is a place for collaboration, for creativity, and for the discovery of new capacities within students and faculty alike.
Whether creating film scores, recording their own songs, imagining soundscapes for installations, or reframing and refocusing a scene in their newest film short, students in the post-production studio have access to professional technology and professional expertise in mixing and editing audio and video media.
The Audio Studio, with a dedicated audio recording booth, changes how sound can be captured on campus. Percussion and string ensemble performances, spoken word poetry, podcasts, and even physics experiments can hear themselves, and let others hear them, better than ever before.
In the Video Studio, students can control lighting, camera angle, and work against green screen backdrops to produce a range of video media, whether a live journalism broadcast or a dramatic special effect.
Students and teachers in the makerspace prototype, sketch, slice, glue, draw in vectors, cut with lasers, and print in 3-D to work through the challenges and possibilities of design and fabrication.
The Industrial Design Studio lets students encounter the resistance of metal and the fragility of glass in some of the most venerable and enduring of design processes.
