Study Digital Design in Glasgow Scotland THE GLASGOW SCHOOL OF ART



The Digital Design Studio (DDS) is driven by an ethos which ensures that the DDS remains a special place to learn, work and do business. We encourage our students and staff to "think out of the box". By ensuring a true multi disciplinary mix, we actively promote new, visions, perspectives, insights and knowledge. In essence we wish to foster and fuse the creativity of Artists' with the intellectual rigour of Scientists', with education fuelling the desire for research and knowledge.

The Digital Design Studio (DDS) is the largest postgraduate research centre of the GSA, with a complement of multidisciplinary Masters students, PhDs and an international multidisciplinary academic and research staff. Since its inception in 1997, it has experienced substantial growth and has now located to new custom-built laboratories at Pacific Quay, Scotlandís Digital Media Quarter, Glasgow. Within this facility, Lab1 (the main teaching, research and educational laboratory) contains state of the art virtual reality, haptic and projection facilities. The 3D projection facility in Lab1 is one of the largest in Europe. The DDS specialises in advanced 3D visualisation and interaction technologies. These technologies consist of 3D laser scanning, visualisation, 3D animation, 3D stereo displays, haptics, motion tracking, gesture based interaction, advanced interfaces, ambisonic sound, and machine vision. The primary focus of research and development is centred on user interaction with real-time digital data involving multidisciplinary skill sets. The DDS has built an international reputation in 3D visualisation and interaction research supported by new tools, techniques and methodologies.
