School of Visual Arts presents “Code Conscious,” an exhibition of prints, video and interactive installations by MFA Computer Art students and alumni. Curated by project coordinator Milan DelVecchio and assistant to the chair Ashley Rae Pearsall, the exhibition is on view October 25 through November 26 at the SVA Flatiron Gallery, 133/141 West 21st Street, New York City.
According to DelVecchio and Pearsall, “The work in this exhibition bridges the gap between the fine art and digital worlds. These artists have incorporated a variety of media, materials and cutting-edge technologies, including digital prints that rely on chance and improvisation by John Cinco (MFA 1998 Computer Art), an interactive installation that uses projection mapping to create a live painting by current student Yuxi Cao, and a sculpture that represents the tension between chaos and order in network infrastructure by Todd Brous (MFA 2006 Computer Art).”
SVA MFA Computer Art emphasizes creative experimentation and a multidisciplinary approach to making art with computers and emerging technologies. Dedicated to producing digital artists of the highest caliber, the department guides each student in the development of a personal artistic style in a course of study that is individually tailored to meet his or her needs. Students come from around the world to study in this MFA program, which has distinguished itself with eight Student Academy Awards.
