Carla Gannis, DDA 555 Subverting Digital Media, Department of Digital Arts, Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, NY

In this course students are learning to explore their creative and potentially non-conformist ideas within the context of digital media practices. Students engage in self-directed practical as well as theoretical inquiry into harnessing the internet, code and the moving image as a means of artistic subversion. Students are studying interventions, disruptions and subversion through the lens of the historical avant-garde and contemporary artistic and tactical media practices. The function of digital media is examined as both an artistic medium and as a vehicle for communication.


John Wise: Flora//Fauna

Tissue paper captured with Dragonframe software, edited with Adobe CC. Sound created from 4 samples of single voice, animal, and screeching metal.

This artwork is a meditation on the organic experience, using light, tissue paper and sound to convey feelings between beauty and fear, beginning and ending. Flora//Fauna is an animation that employs Dragonframe to capture images and After Effects & Premiere to edit the images together, stitching single frames and single sound samples to create a representation of the organic/internal experience. This is a section of a longer piece by the same title.
