The Media Lab is a center for experiments with digital forms of art and learning.
The audio-visual entity now forms a sphere of communication as well as an open archive. It takes on the form of notes and scribbles, diary and letters, private reflection and public speech. Informal practices of image, word and music have created a language in which we have begun to make ordinary conversation.
The Media Lab hosts archiving, research and training with a view to using this new language in the study of Indian film and media. It hopes to bring together the skills of the scholar and the artist, the critic and the activist, into one process of creative learning.
It takes its part in the new worldwide initiative of Digital Humanities.
