Invitation for Interactive Exchange (Interactive Studio)

March 13, 2023 - April 26, 2023
Interactive Studio Class Sessions in LIB 040

The exhibition "Invitation for Interactive Exchange" is an investigation of using different interactive technologies to explore real world issues and ideas. This class seeks to expand the range and digital arsenal of artists by practicing their skills and ideas through different exercises on various contemporary programs. Multi-semester long projects for this class include a visual novel game made in Ren'Py that focuses on social media and the increasingly digital lifestyle we face in relation to the people we interact with, as well as a psuedo-virtual world game made in Construct 3 that revolves around the idea of early online presence and identity.
