About CCAM

CCAM, the Center for Collaborative Arts and Media is an interdisciplinary arts research center that bridges diverse arts disciplines and fosters critical inquiry at the intersections of visual art, design, film, music/sound, performance, and computer science. Our programs promote interdisciplinary inquiry, discourse, production, and research across expanding fields of arts practice.  We support collaborations in arts research across disciplines with an open door policy to all Yale students— graduate, professional, and undergraduate students alike.  Our team helps students identify research conduits at the Center, across campus, through inter-collegiate partnerships, and within industries, to bolster more innovative arts practices and partnerships at Yale.  Insomuch, the Center promotes interdisciplinary arts research practices that go both wide and deep.

The World of CCAM

The interdisciplinary world of CCAM is expressed above as an animated graphic inspired by Paul Klee’s Bauhaus Star. Paul Klee sketched the Bauhaus Star (lower right) as a celestial response to the Buahuas curriculum structure diagram by Walter Gropius (lower left). The CCAM version of Klee’s star presents the dynamic, generative world for CCAM. The interdisciplinary interaction between the various disciplines and agents reinforce and permeate each other. At CCAM these interdisciplinary interactions are suffused and supported by an atmosphere of technology and experimentation. The center of the star represents the goals of CCAM, where generating collaborative projects and research are central to our mission.
