DANM TUESDAYS 4-6 allow the DANM community to come together each week to listen, learn and share our work and play. During the upcoming winter quarter the series will focus on professional development. We welcome DANM alumni back to present about their experiences. Come – and meet your future! Full series here.


Last week's talks on pursuing a PhD were extremely informative. Laila, Karl and Aaron were very honest and up front. Looking forward to more tips, tricks and pitfalls from our alums next week.

Building an Art Practice

Tuesday, January 15 (4-6)

DARC 206


Next Tuesday, January 15, we will hear from three alumni who have been extremely busy building their practices, exhibiting, teaching, you name it: Lyés Belhocine ('10), Drew Detweiler ('10), and Nick Lally ('10). Collaborators Lyés and Drew will attend in person, and Nick will participate via skype.


Lyés Belhocine and Drew Detweiler began their collaborative work in the Digital Arts and New Media MFA program at the University of California Santa Cruz in 2010. Their shared interest in interactive experience design, participatory play, and remix culture has resulted in a series of work exhibited at The California Academy of Sciences, The Tech Museum, Absolute Zero, subZERO, ZERO1, Zeum Children’s Creativity Museum, Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, NASA Ames Research Center, The Museum of Art and History Santa Cruz and The Soundwave Festival. They will be discussing their work and demonstrating their CUBIIC DJ/VJ interface which was a top ten finalist in the Infiniti Designboom international digital art competition and was recently featured at the Palais Abdelia, Exposition OBJECTS SON in Tunis, Tunisia.


Nick Lally is an artist living in Oakland, California. He has an MFA in Digital Arts and New Media from UC Santa Cruz, he is a founding member of the Artclash Collective, he teaches at the California College of the Arts and the San Francisco Art Institute, and he likes making things. His interests include digital media, collaboration, participation, radical political theory, mathematics, education, bicycles, and friendship.
