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.

Holly Adams is a sophomore Interactive Arts major in Pratt DDA, focusing their study on societal expectations, topics of personal agency, and systems aesthetics. By adopting a familiar text-display technique in this philosophical work, they push the viewer into reading esoteric ramblings that they may not have read otherwise. The text in the work explores the way in which participants of the digital realm have different privileges than they do in the physical world.
