The DANM 2009 MFA Exhibition

interACTIVATE digital art :: social impact

The Digital Arts and New Media MFA program at UC Santa Cruz will present the work of ten graduate students in a two-part exhibition at The Museum of Art & History in downtown Santa Cruz. Entitled interACTIVATE, this UCSC DANM MFA presentation is the culmination of two years of research and artistic exploration into digital media art and its social impact. The show includes new media works that explore performativity, interactivity, participation and politics. These works probe the interplay of private and public space as they interrogate the borderlands, edges, and contested territories of contemporary new media art practice.
