DMI Fresh Media 2024: Technotanicals


Fresh Media '24 is a showcase of diverse range of art pieces, encompassing audio-visual experiences, digital/mechanical devices, augmented reality, video games, projection mapping, and educational tools. This annual exhibition is organized by students and highlights the work of MFA candidates from the Dynamic Media Institute (DMI) at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.

The practices of DMI students are grounded in research, leading to projects aligned with their chosen conceptual areas of focus. Within this showcase, a diverse collective of educators, developers, designers, and artists explores a spectrum of work encompassing both analog and digital mediums. This exploration bridges the gap between traditional artistic practices like drawing and painting and the realm of interactive technology, which includes microcontrollers, digital displays, projectors, microphones, video cameras, augmented reality, sensors, and various computer platforms.
