The context of the SUDAC, established in 1997, expands and becomes the Experimental Media Arts program

The Stanford University Digital Art Center, SUDAC, was founded in 1997 by Greg Niemeyer and Joel Leivick as an extension to the Studio Program in the Department of Art and Art History.

Classes offered in Experimental Media Arts include audio, video, digital, electronic and web art; media archaeologies and sound art; animation and art and biology; among others. The EMA facilities provide access to large format printers, video and audio hardware and software, an analog electronics work station, video microscopes, and a wet work area.
