From 24 October to 25 November 2015, the School of Visual Arts Flatiron Gallery, in New York, is presenting “Techtonic Shift”, an exhibition of prints, video and interactive installations by alumni of the Motion Graphics, Fine Art and Animation (MFA) Computer Art Department.
The exhibition has been curated in preparation for the department’s 30th anniversary next year and curators, Milan Delvecchio and Angelica Vergel, wanted to take the opportunity to showcase the department’s fine art alumni and faculty. The artists exhibiting have incorporated a variety of analogue and digital media, experimenting with technology and abstraction such as Mel Hsieh’s video combines 35mm film footage with digital effects and 3D modelling. The MFA Computer Art Department emphasises creative research to making art with computers and emerging technologies. It is dedicated to producing digital artists of the highest ability and guides students in the development of a personal artistic style. The Department has distinguished itself with eight Student Academy Awards.
