The Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design (ACCAD) is a computer animation and emerging technologies interdisciplinary research center. We function as a collaborative space to make, create, imagine and connect.  ACCAD is internationally recognized as one of the original and leading centers of its kind, distinguished by the transdisciplinary approach to research and teaching which is central to its identity. ACCAD functions as an applied collaboratory for time-based digital media production, both in furthering the excellence of its faculty and graduate students in residence and cultivating its own innovative research agenda.

Located in the newly renovated Sullivant Hall at the heart of The Ohio State University’s Arts District, our work unfolds in a generous physical space, complemented by specialized and flexible studios for animation, motion capture, interactive design, media production and mediated performance design. ACCAD’s collaborative partnerships include a wide interdisciplinary range of campus disciplines and external relationships. Please visit our Project Gallery to see our work.
