Abstract:


    How can art and design institutions bridge the gap between the academic environment and the “real world?” How can these institutions have an active role in the community at large? How can technology be used to facilitate collaborative projects in higher education? What are the promises and perils of integrating art and technology for collective action?

    Innovative educators from several disciplines, including media and sound arts, architecture, and performance/installation discuss successful collaborations between students and cultural institutions, industry, other schools, and professional artists. Among the arts and education projects discussed: a student-designed virtual tour of a museum, a design collaboration that is taking place on the Web and in a city subway system, a collaborative-architecture design studio, and collaborations with Sun Microsystems, NASA, and internationally renowned artists including Robert Ashley, Jenny Holzer, and Guillermo Gomez-Pena.
