Type A 3-D printers in the A & D Design Studio and Epilog Laser as well as Lulzbot, Ultimaker 2 etc.

The Art and Technology area has dedicated labs and state-of-the-art facilities for the production of 3D models, 3D animations, interactive and robotic art, game art, Internet art, wide-format prints, moving image art, bio art, virtual reality works and collaborative spaces for the development of new forms.

New Media Robotics Lab (156 Hopkins Hall): a full suite of software and hardware options with 20 Macintosh workstations supporting Arduino microcontroller programming, MAX MSP, and  Jitter software, Processing, Maya, C4D 3D modeling, Full Adobe suite; Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere etc.

New Media Bio Art and Gaming Lab (160 Hopkins Hall): Kinect workstations – one devoted to sound mixing and experimentation and the other more focused on connectivity. The electronics portion of the lab features electronic test equipment such as multimeters, oscilloscopes, soldering workstations, breadboards, frequency generators, drill press, aluminum band saw, and fridge for bio-based experimentation. It also features projectors connected to the workstations for Kinect and game-based experimentation as well as Oculus VR systems.

The Fergus-Gilmore Computer Studio (Hopkins 180A) features 22 Macintosh workstations, Wacom tablets, scanners and 3 large format archival printers with Maya, C4D 3D modeling software, MAX MSP, and  Jitter software, Processing, Full Adobe suite; Illustrator, Photoshop, Premiere, and Unity for making Art Games,  etc.

The Collaboratory (146 Hopkins Hall) and (180B) are used by senior undergraduates to experiment and create installations as well as for production space devoted to collaborations with the arts and sciences on campus.


The Green Screen Lighting Lab  (Hopkins 162) is jointly administered with the Photography area.

The camera and check out room administered by the Photography Area on the 3rd floor of the Department of Art has checkouts of video cameras, projectors, drawing tablets and other equipment.

This space provides backdrops, lighting, green screen suits, and gloves and allows our students to videotape and experiment with chroma keying and compositing.

The Studios for Art & Design Research is a shared facility co-located on the 1st floor of Hopkins Hall on Ohio State’s main campus.

Equipment includes a full woodshop and metal shop with tools for check out, 2 laser cutters, 4 x 8 foot CNC router, and four Type A 3-D printers, a MakerBot Replicator 2X, Lulzbot, Ultimaker 2.

The Hopkins Hall Gallery on the first floor and hallway are used each semester for large Art & Technology Exhibitions where our students display that semester’s art/science research. https://u.osu.edu/artandtech/recent-exhibition/
