The annual Main Project has a mission-driven focus. It consists of both a research and development phase. The research phase, lasting from February to July, aims to create a new artistic medium that builds upon current TUDelft research. In the following development phase, this medium creates an artwork that facilitates an understanding of complex technology that has been "blackboxed." Ultimately, we seek to compete in the annual Prix Ars Electronica, the world's most well-known media arts competition.
The team members working on the main project have the option to hold a part-time of full-time function within the Development team or the Research team, which both have the duration of half a year. Both the Development and Research teams consist of different sub-departments. These departments consist of a combination of part-time and full-time team members.
The Development team is grouped into the following sub-departments:
Development - Conceptualization
Development - Fabrication
Development - Documentation
