The Brooklyn Experimental Media Center (BxmC) provides an interdisciplinary environment for media research at NYU-Poly, partnering faculty and students from the Integrated Digital Media program with collaborators from NYU-Poly, NYU, New York City, and beyond. Our research combines experimental practices in media arts and engineering, constantly modifying industry-standard technologies and creating new ones.
The program in Integrated Digital Media at NYU-Poly consists of both Bachelors and Masters of Science degrees that look at the field of digital media in a holistic way, as a spectrum of practices that runs the gamut from interaction design to performing arts research to photography, video, sound, and 3-D graphics, to games and human-computer interfaces. Our students are artists, engineers, and entrepreneurs working in extraordinarily fluid industries that reward the creative, the thoughtful, the technical, and the innovative.
