About the RIT MAGIC Center and MAGIC Spell Studios: MAGIC at RIT is the university's multi-disciplinary hub for the exploration and production of digital media by the RIT community. It represents a conscious and deliberate effort to blur the lines between the arts and the sciences, between technology and expression, between the study of the creation of media and its impact and effect on society and the human condition. The MAGIC Center is designed to bridge the gap between research and prototyping, a common output of academia, and the ability to bring industry polish and commercial scale and support to appropriate projects. At MAGIC, faculty, staff, student researchers, artists, and practitioners come together to create, contextualize, and apply new knowledge in a multitude of related fields and disciplines as appropriate not only to STEM, or the Arts & Humanities, but their intersection.
