At the New York Film Academy we recognize that the key to succeeding in a competitive industry is building a complete, holistic skill set. Rather than just focusing on the nuts and bolts of your given visual arts discipline, our Visual Arts School's curriculum focuses on a mixture of academic, technical, and professional skills. Our goal is for visual arts students to thrive in their chosen field long after they've received their diploma or certification. From the first day on, visual arts students will find themselves behind a canvas, keyboard, or camera, practicing their art and getting hands-on experience building a portfolio or reel that will help them long after they leave the Academy.
Works are created by people moving through laser beams or from data gathered on air pollution Russian artist Dmitry Morozov has devised a way to make pollution beautiful. Who would have heard of Andy Warhol without silkscreen printing?
The truth is that technology has been providing artists with new ways to express themselves for a very long time. Yes, an original version of Pong is there, presented as lovable antiquity. But the show also features a wide variety of digital artists who are using technology to push art in different directions, often to allow gallery visitors to engage with it in a multi-dimensional way.
The inclination for most people is to work alone, but the shapes they produce tend to be more fragile. But wait, these are very responsive tubes, bending and moving and changing colors based on how they read your movements, sounds and touch. The immersive artwork, developed by a design group called Minimaforms, is meant to provide a glimpse into the future, when robots or even artificial pets will be able to read our moods and react in kind.
Come back the next day and it will look at least a little different. The creation of artists Julian Adenauer and Michael Haas, the Vertwalker—which looks like a flattened iRobot Roomba —is constantly overwriting its own work, cycling through eight colors as it glides up vertical walls for two to three hours at a time before it needs a battery change.
The beauty of dirty air Morozov built a device, complete with a plastic nose, that uses sensors to gather pollution data. Then, he headed out to the streets of Moscow.
The sensors translate the data they gather into volts and a computing platform called Arduino translates those volts into shapes and colors, creating a movie of pollution. As irony would have it, the dirtier the air, the brighter the image.
Exhaust smoke can look particularly vibrant. He starts by drawing an intricate design, then meticulously cuts out the many shapes that, when layered over one another, form a 3-D version of his drawing. One of his windows might comprise as many as laser-cut sheets stacked together.
One night last year, a laser they mounted on a crane atop a moving train projected images, topographical maps and even lines of poetry into the dark Southern California countryside.
The installation is a giant triptych, and gallery visitors can stand in front of each of the screens.
That, according to Milk, represents the moment of creative inspiration. In the second, the shadow is pecked away by virtual birds diving from above.
That symbolizes critical response, he explains. And that, says Milk, captures the instant when a creative thought transforms into something larger than the original idea.The UC San Diego Department of Visual Arts encourages experimentation, innovation and risk-taking in scholarly and artistic production.

Mrs. Candace Jones, Administrative. A major cross-school initiative, the MIT Center for Art, Science & Technology (CAST) was founded in with a grant from the Andrew W.
Mellon Foundation. Since then, CAST has been the catalyst for more than 35 artist residencies and collaborative projects with MIT faculty and students—20 cross. But since technology applications like the Adobe Creative programs, coupled with 3-D rendering systems and printers, are now the industry standards in commercial art fields, they are being included in some schools’ arts programs as well.
It is the mission of the Department of Visual and Performing Arts to provide the academic and social education, along with intensive arts training to create a new generation of artists and involved citizens for a .
