ATRL - Arts Technology Research Lab

ATRL

Located at The Trinity Technology and Enterprise Centre, Charlotte Quay at Pearse Street, Dublin 2, the ATRL is an interdisciplinary, postgraduate research centre of the School of Creative Arts at Trinity College, Dublin, designed to explore the emergent fields of creative art practice and new technologies. ATRL senior scholars and postgraduate researchers will innovate unique practical methods while pursuing critical, historical and theoretical research in order to engage future art forms of digital culture that are networked, interactive, multimedia, hybrid, virtual, immersive and ubiquitous. ATRL draws on the synergies of the School of Creative Arts's performance and timebased disciplines to re-imagine film and video, music and sound production, and theatre, dance, live art and installation in a digital environment. In collaboration with the Schools of Computer Science and Engineering, ATRL brings the scientist, engineer and artist into dialogue to offer the widest range of experimental opportunities and academic rigor in the practice and study of digital culture and the arts.
