Input/Output Lab in the White House

In the summer semester of 2022, the first of two Studium Digitale workspaces was launched in the White House on the Arts Campus. The I/O enables project-related work with digital media. Special focus is on photography, photogrammetry (3D scanning) and working with 3D graphics software. The space also offers opportunities for work related to sound, video and coding. The thematic focus is particularly on the artistic, experimental exploration of the digitisation process as translation.
How are pictorial objects transformed when they are translated into a computer-understandable language? In what form can they be materialised and thus made tangible? How do design work and artistic creation change in the field of tension between input and output with a computer as an intermediate channel?
The free use of the room can take place after participation in a thematically related workshop within the framework of Studium Digitale or in consultation with its staff. For the realisation of projects in the room, additional photo and video equipment can be borrowed.
