As I see it, technology has built the house in which we all live. The house is continually being extended and remodelled. More and more of human life takes place within its walls, so that today there is hardly any human activity that does not occur within this house. All are affected by the design of the house, by the division of its space, by the location of its doors and walls. Compared to people in earlier times, we rarely have a chance to live outside this house. And the house is still changing; it is still being built as well as being demolished. — Dr. Ursula Franklin, The Real World of Technology
Integrated Media (INTM) is an innovative digital and time-based area that encourages an interdisciplinary exploration of media practices. Students are asked to question how they position themselves in the world in relation to technology. The Integrated Media program examines the role that technology plays in our culture and emphasizes our need for critical engagement. Students are exposed to a wide range of media practices that include film, video, robotics, electronics, performance, web, installation, interactivity, animation and audio. Students graduate from the program as independent thinkers and practitioners. Our graduates have gone on to careers as media artists, curators and theorists, and practitioners in the film and television industries, as well as to graduate schools and international and local residency programs.
Equipment and Facilities Access
Students have access to equipment and facilities for specified production courses only. Access is limited to the duration of a student’s enrolment in that course and is subject to the rules and regulations as outlined in the Integrated Media Policies Handbook. Co-requisites are recommended for specific courses where technical instruction on equipment is not provided. INTM Thesis students have access to equipment and facilities based on prior levels of learning and/or concurrent enrolment. Materials fees apply to certain Integrated Media courses.
Note: Students in Integrated Media are required to purchase their own external hard drive in order to transfer and store their digital media.
