This spectre, which covers interactive, sound and audiovisual art, is present, as an interdisciplinary mix, in the professional practice of our students. Our graduates work as artists, television producers, multimedia designers, entrepreneurs and technological artists. The list of our alumni includes Piibe Piirma, Mart Normet, Eve Arpo, Taavi Suisalu, Juhan Soomets, Tõnis Jürgens and Hannes Aasamets.
