Transart Institute today announced the workshops 
and seminars for this years' summer
residency. Workshop topics range from "Language 
and Image" to "Archeology of Media",
with seminars coming in flavors of "Software as 
Metaphor" and "Documenta XII User
Guide", to name a few. The full program can be 
found at: <http://transartinstitute.org/>http://transartinstitute.org/

Applications to the low-residency MFA program are being accepted with rolling
admissions until June 1, 2006. Five places are 
reserved for the final deadline to
accommodate the European schedule.

Transart Institute's international MFA in New 
Media program is designed for working
artists to develop a sustainable creative praxis in
 three summer residencies (17 days each) in 
Linz, Austria plus two optional winter
residencies in New York
 and two school years of independent project 
work with supporting mentorships -
wherever they work and live.

The innovative program focusses on content and 
context. Students work in the genres
which best communicate their ideas including 
animation, architecture, curating, cyberart,
digital and experimental media, film, gaming, 
graphic design, installation, painting,
performance, photography, robotics, sculpture, 
sound, text, video, virtual reality.

The program is intended to lift the boundaries 
between applied and fine arts, traditional
and new media, artists and scholars. Students are 
free to pursue work in any media art-
related genre and to create their own course of 
study. Detailed information is available on
the institute's website: www.transartinstitute.org and through email from:
