Dynamic Media Institute ( DMI ) is up to its old tricks again, planning to usher in the 2011 semester with an amazing new show — mediaLuscious Design + Art Review. mediaLuscious will feature the eclectic, forward-thinking prototypes and simulations from MassArt’s MFA Graduate Design students. Their work includes: immersive video and sound installations; performance art; onscreen interface design; dynamic narrative; and interactive gaming scenarios.
Students at DMI leverage the latest new media technologies to transform seemingly ordinary objects and traditional artworks into innovative, experimental interfaces exploring the future of communication and designed participatory experience.
“The ultimate purpose behind mediaLuscious is to create new exposure and greater awareness for the creative work that DMI continuously produces,” says Tania Ostorga co-curator of the exhibition. “Its important to get the work out in front of the public often and see how they respond to the mind-opening array of work inspired by the program.”
“This is a critical year for Dynamic Media Institute — a true milestone to celebrate,” co-curator lou suSi explains. “And we’ve lined up several ambitious and intriguing shows to make this 10th year of DMI a special one, filled with the thought-provoking work of current students, faculty and legendary alumni that make up this international family of innovative, interdisciplinary, creative thinkers.”
Alex Wang, co-curator of the show elaborates further, “This is a great chance to bring our work to life. Its inspiring to see an audience playing with our creations, and a bit unpredictable. Each student brings their unique professional backgrounds and personality to DMI and it shows in exhibits like mediaLuscious.”
Co-curated by The Dynamic Media Institute's Tania Ostorga, Alex Wang and lou suSi — the mediaLuscious show includes the works of Alison Kotin, David Tamés, Daniel Buckley, Nicole Tariverdian, Jeff Bartell, Maria Stangel, Zach Kaiser, Chris Field, Joseph Liberty, Andrew Ellis, Tania Ostorga, Alex Wang and lou suSi.
