SVA’s class of 2007 has already received their diplomas, but there’s still great work to be seen from our most recent graduates. An exhibition of thesis projects from the MFA Computer Art Department is set to open in the Visual Arts Gallery, featuring nearly 40 projects that run the digital gamut: experimental linear video, networked media, video and visual music installation, experimental non-narrative and narrative 3D animation, and interactive installation and performance. The artists use these technologies to explore their inner selves, the outer world and how their relationships to one another are mediated through technology. Together, the works of art demonstrate that the computer is more than a mere tool—it is the means to uncharted directions in art.
The show, curated by faculty member Russet Lederman, will be at the Visual Arts Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, from May 25 – June 9. There will be an opening reception at the gallery on Tuesday, May 29, 6 – 8pm.
