TASML’s Mission

Tsinghua University Art and Science Research Center Media Laboratory ushers in a new era in China’s experimental research linking art, sciences and technology. It is of great significance both strategically and practically in establishing a structured approach to the research and production of new media art and design, which will advance the development of overall media art education and practice in China, creating standards for such endeavors in the future. Under the auspices of the Art and Science Research Center of Tsinghua University, which is administered by the Academy of Arts and Design, the media laboratory is conceived as a research and production unit that aims to synergize the rich resources available among the University’s diverse research institutions and laboratories to create an incubator for crossbred, interdisciplinary experiments among artists, designers, scientists and technologists. TASML also functions as a center and a hub for worldwide exchange and collaboration both with academic and research institutions and the global media art and design community. Through information sharing and knowledge transfer, TASML can also be seen as a catalyst of innovations for other disciplines in the arts and for the creative industry in general.
