UCSC Creative Coding is a team of interdisciplinary researchers and artists affiliated with the Computational Media department at University of California, Santa Cruz. We focus on applied research in interaction and visualization, and also on the exploration of experimental and creative works based on current techniques in human-computer interaction, scientific and information visualization, graphics, computer vision, immersive environments, and machine learning. A core philosophy of UCSC Creative Coding is that by incorporating research methodologies from media arts, design, and computer science, we can develop novel solutions to interdisciplinary problems. Moreover, we believe that the creative outputs generated at the intersections of artistic and empirical research can meaningfully elucidate issues in science and technology relevant to contemporary culture. UCSC Creative Coding is directed by Prof. Angus Forbes.

We are always looking for bright graduate students to join our group and we currently have funding for a postdoctoral researcher in human-computer interaction and/or information visualization. For questions about how to get involved with UCSC Creative Coding, please contact Angus Forbes at angus@ucsc.edu, or stop by his office at E2 259. The research group also currently occupies a multi-use space for graduate student desks and developing research projects, located across the hall in the Engineering 2 building.
