Carrying the CAF

September 29, 2006

Each year, the local NYC chapter of digital-art organization SIGGRAPH assembles a jury of industry professionals to select work for its annual Metropolitan Area College Computer Animation Festival (MetroCAF). And as in previous years, the bulk of the artists chosen to participate come from SVA.

The 2006 MetroCAF event, which was held September 26 at NYC’s Fashion Institute of Technology, featured work by members of the BFA Computer Art Department’s class of 2006: Kristen Basile, Josh Greer, Mothana Hussein, Kitty Lin, Wing Luo, Veronica Min Rodrigo de la Parra, Shaun Reuter, Eric Wagner, Chad Yapyapan and Catherine Yoo; the MFA Computer Art Department was represented by 2006 alumni Roger Hom, Young Woong Jang, Yan-Sheuw Ke, Keng-Ming Liu and Robert Roe. “MetroCAF judges are unaware of any school affiliation when viewing an entrant’s piece,” says Steve Rittler, chair of the festival, adding that “once again, SVA has carried the field at MetroCAF.”
