The main idea was to develop a National Institute of Art and Technology’ to initiate an Interactive and responsive system to promote, provide and pursue integrated fields of art and technology as a mode of exploring possibilities. This place was anticipated to be a system that constantly evolves different interactive and responsive events among people, space, activities and environment and thus acts as a stimulation and inspiration for new ideas and thoughts. It is an approach towards an experimentation where the environment with is changing persona, different qualities of spaces, physical elements like: structure, building surface etc., various human activities (both physical and psychological), landscape and surrounding context—all are perceived as active participants towards creating numerous anticipated interactive events, and thus extending the boundary of architectonic perception.
Bangladesh is a promising name in the global context. The numbers of multinational companies are increasing creating new specialized career opportunities. There are more than 100 companies outsourcing on Visual Technology based works. Furthermore, with the expansion of television channels, print media and entertainment business, new specialized professional fields are emerging. The demands, scopes and possibilities of these and other related professions are increasing too along with this current evolving context. But unfortunately, lack of proper educational facilities for these specialized professions in Bangladesh is affecting the development and expansion of the related industries, hindering entrepreneurship thus making her unable to compete in the global market.With the exponential advancement of technology worldwide, different forms of arts are being integrated with technological aspects, creating numerous contemporary modes of expression and production. Thus, Photography, Motion Graphics Designing, Digital Media Production and Communication, Animation, Game designing etc are among the most demanding professions around the world as the form of economic activities, communication systems, social behavior patterns and modes of entertainment are changing.
