Facility for Arts Research (FAR),
part of Florida State University’s College of Fine Arts
, supports rigorous investigation and inquiry across artistic media and disciplines with a focus on technological innovation. FAR incorporates formLab
, which gives artists, designers and scientists access to a variety of tools to engage in hybrid digital/physical practices, and Small Craft Advisory Press (SCAP)
, which blends traditional and digital printmaking processes to create collaborative artists’ books, and REBOOT
, a laboratory that looks toward our culture’s production of waste as a point of departure for a critical engagement with technology. FAR’s mission is to develop and share arts research-related resources with Florida State University and the larger community, providing a variety of classroom experiences, residencies, exhibitions, internship/volunteer opportunities and workshops.
