The opportunities for artists and technologists working in artistic domains have long encountered difficulties in finding appropriate ways to ‘measure’ artistic practice in ‘practice-based research’ terms.
- The aim of the Arts and Computational Technology programme, offered by Goldsmiths, University of London, is to support students in their creation of new forms of artistic expression, and in their invention and application of new technologies that help make the art form possible.
- We therefore expect you to take a novel and personal path of exploration. This path will be determined by the shifts you make between artistic, technical, practical, conceptual and theoretical domains in relation to your own unique vision.
- You will have two supervisors (one from arts practice, and one from computer science), and can attend weekly PhD research seminars where students can present their findings to peers and staff; you are expected to give two presentations per year.
- You also present your work at College level through interdisciplinary Graduate School seminars and at Spring Review week.
We have established a forum with the Creativity and Cognition studios at the University of Technology, Sydney for characterising practice situated across arts and computational technology, which offers the potential for collaborative research.
Assessment is by:
- written thesis (60-80,000 words)
- practical/technological component in an appropriate form
- 36 months
- 48 months
Start dates & application deadlines

- We encourage you to complete your application as early as possible, even if you haven't finished your current programme of study.
