Now through Saturday, April 12, visitors to Open Book will see displayed student work submitted to the Digital Salon, an exhibition of new media sponsored by the UW-Madison Libraries and DesignLab. The 5th annual exhibition showcases artistic and research-based projects that take digital form or are produced using information technology.
Experimental videos, infographics, comics, websites, blogs, multimedia installations, posters and other new media work by UW graduate and undergraduate students are on exhibit in College Library’s Open Book (Room 1250), as well as in our online exhibit.
Four works were singled out for special merit, including:
Best in Show: The Story by Jamie Jacobson (Undergraduate) – video. Jamie’s project was created for Art 448 and tells a brief, nonsensical story meant to capture the feel of odd second hand bookshops and dusty old tomes.
Honorable Mention: The Ballet of Communication, Meredith Smith (Undergraduate) – Meredith’s video was created for Comm Arts 220; Ashley Hinck, Instructor.
Honorable Mention: Northern Lights, Lucy Hodkiewicz (Undergraduate) – digital illustration. Lucy’s project is a digital painting of the northern lights done using a drawing tablet and Photoshop.
Honorable Mention: The Translator, Jojin van Winkle (Graduate student) – video. Jojin’s project was created for Art 469; Greg Mitman, Instructor.
