2013 Digital Arts and New Media MFA exhibition
Saturday, April 27, 2013 to Sunday, May 5, 2013
Digital Arts Research Center (DARC) UCSC
Presented by: 
Arts Division
Digital Arts and New Media
Sesnon Gallery (note: Use Sesnon Art Gallery instead)

The Digital Arts & New Media (DANM) MFA graduate program at UCSC is proud to present its 2013 exhibition, ground (ctrl).


Collectively, the artists invite you to redefine the meanings of "digital arts" and "new media" by way of hybridized video installations, interactive experiences, telematic performances and sound art; individually, within those digitized formats, each artist and their work will examine the social impact and intersection of art and media.


As a whole, ground (ctrl) breeds fresh materiality through collaborative digital research; with soil, light and interactivity as the main motifs that bridge all the artworks in the exhibition, these elements will purposefully transform the Digital Arts Research Center into a living entity.


Experience and participate the latest digital technologies and experimental performances. The artists will be on hand to discuss their work and give tours. ground (ctrl) is curated by Shelby Graham, Sesnon Gallery Director.


Artists: John-Patrick Ayson, Deryke Franz, Jacob Garbe, Catalina Giraldo, Dan Heller, Andrew Siller, Eve Warnock, Laura Wright
