This year, the Miami University MFA in Experience Design joins with Computer Science to launch a new Miami Augmented Reality Center (ARC). The Center, the brainchild of Dr. Bo Brinkman, works to advance augmented reality (AR) as a cultural practice. Embedded within Miami University, the ARC includes participation from the Master of Computer Science program (MCS),the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering (CSE), the Master of Fine Arts (MFA) in Experience Design, the Department of Art, and the Armstrong Institute for Interactive Media Studies (AIMS).
Beginning Fall of 2014, the ARC will be located inside the MFA Experience Design studio, to encourage ongoing collaborations between Experience Design students and Computer Science grad students. As the Creative Director of the ARC, I look forward to future cross-disciplinary projects.
