School of Visual Arts (SVA) presents the MFA Computer Art open studio 2016, bringing together multidisciplinary projects from our students. The event will be open to the public on December 8 at the MFA Computer Art Studio. The creative work encompasses a wide range of media including video, animation, audio, interactive installations and physical computing. “As digital art evolves, the line between it and contemporary art is disappearing. We see it as fine art using digital techniques to enable creativity,” states department chair Bruce Wands.
