Studio for Extensive Aesthetics
The Studio for Extensive Aesthetics (SEA) investigates the roles of art, design and technology in contemporary society. Particularly, the studio focuses on the cultural mechanics and aesthetics of the network and the data produced by it. Transdisciplinary in nature, SEA operates through artistic and computational means to produce artworks and experimental platforms. The studio connects student and faculty researchers with international theorists and practitioners through projects ranging from screen-based work to urban-scale installations.
SEA is directed by Amber Frid-Jimenez, Canada Research Chair in art, design and technology, and was founded in 2014. The studio is co-located with the Graduate Studies programme at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, and is funded by the Canada Research Chair programme and the British Columbia Knowledge Development Fund.
