On the Metro

October 10, 2008

The Metropolitan Area College Computer Animation Festival (MetroCAF) is digital-art organization SIGGRAPH’s annual juried presentation of student work. As in past years, the 2008 edition featured a strong showing from recent graduates of SVA’s MFA and BFA computer art programs. When the final MetroCAF selections were shown on September 25 at FIT’s Haft Auditorium, more than half of the included works came from recent SVA alumni, and three of the four Jury Recognition Awards went to entrants from the College.

Five of the artists are members of the MFA Computer Art Department’s class of 2008: Kwi Bum Chung, Alex Frenklakh, Chia-Chien Mai, Yun Wang and Chang-Pei Wu; 13 included artists received a 2008 BFA in Computer Art, Computer Animation and Visual Effects: Marc Christoforidis, Daniel Devine, Shai Halfon, David Han, Eric Huang, Sun Young Kim, Adam Newman, Luis Perez, Richard Pernice, Shayne Ryan, Michael Shin, Joji Tsuruga and Roland Womack; and Han, Huang and Mai each earned MetroCAF jury awards.
