Dr Tim Stott will present a paper at the 2017 annual College Art Association conference in New York. His paper, part of the panel Playing Art History/Gaming the Museum is titled Playing with Loose Parts: The Design 12 Course and Pre-Digital Interactive Environments. It investigates historical connections between art, play and interactivity through a study of the Design 12 course established by British sculptor Simon Nicholson in 1966, and will consider what current attempts by arts institutions to build interactive game environments still might learn from the pre-digital ludic strategies proposed by Design 12 and those environmental designers who have followed its example.

The Dublin School of Creative Arts is delighted to present a new MA in Visual and Critical Studies, which studies the theory and criticism of contemporary visual culture and the history of art and design. We offer the MA as part of the Creative Arts Masters Platform, which offers a unique opportunity for focussed study in an interdisciplinary environment along with MA students in art and design studio practice.
The MA Visual and Critical Studies is for graduates of visual culture, art history, design history, and philosophy of art. It is designed to provide students with the opportunity for focused study in contemporary visual culture, supported by archival and textual research.
Students of Visual and Critical Studies benefit from an extensive library at DIT, access to local art and design archives, the possibility of collaboration with local and national arts institutions, and the opportunity to work with faculty on live research projects.
