PIMA embraces an expansive definition of art, and acknowledges the blurring boundaries between the arts. PIMA promotes the idea that computer programming, like image and sound manipulation, is an important and exciting art form for contemporary practitioners.

Our goal is to teach and support such art practice through team-teaching, student collaboration, shared facilities, and the development of a curriculum specific to the needs of artists working with technology and expanded models of art-making. To achieve this goal, PIMA provides students with theoretical and technical backgrounds as well as practical experience in the conceptualization and production of collaborative, multi-disciplinary artworks.

Specifically, the students in the program:

– learn the theory, history, and practice of employing technology as a means of extending collaborative artistic practice;

– learn specific technological tools and techniques which can be used to facilitate cross-disciplinary artistic collaboration;

– develop skills in interactive media programming as a central component of the first two semesters of study;

– gain practical experience and professional-level skills in multi-disciplinary arts event production;

– through a collective process, create multi-disciplinary artworks for presentation in a performance setting.

PIMA is a cooperative venture of the Brooklyn College, CUNY, departments of Art, Computer and Information Science, Television and Radio, Theater, and the Conservatory of Music.

Program Director: David Grubbs

Participating faculty include Vito Acconci (Art), David Grubbs (Music), John J.A. Jannone (Television and Radio), Miguel Macias (Television and Radio), Jennifer McCoy (Art), Helen E. Richardson (Theater), Elizabeth Sklar (Computer and Information Science), and Lynn M. Thomson (Theater).
