Students' art blends photos, computation

For Professor John Maeda's graduate class in "Numeric Photography" at the Media Laboratory (MAS961), students were equipped with low-end digital cameras to explore aesthetic issues in signal processing and interaction design. In weekly assignments, the students created more than a hundred applets--many of which are interactive--that suggest new avenues for image-play on the computer.

An exhibition of their digital artworks, which blend photography and computation, will be presented on Friday, Dec. 11 from 3-8pm in the Building E15 atrium. A reception will be held at 6pm. You can also see their online exhibition at http://acg.media.mit.edu/mas961/exhibition/ starting December 11.
