Cyberarts Studio

Irina Aristarkhova oversees the new Cyberarts Studio at NUS, which just opened. It's a big open room, lined with lots of brand-new Macintosh workstations, scanners, electric pianos, and a wonderful little stage for informal talks. (I did a Storyspace 2 demo there on my last day in Singapore, then ran out the door to catch a plane home with minutes to spare)

It's interesting that Prof. Aristarkhova is primarily interested in visual art, not literature or graphic design. There's an interesting space to explore here, both in terms of art and audience, and in the media economy. It will be very interesting to see what new works emerge from this studio, both from its artists-in-residence and from students.
