Just before finals last semester, a group of students traveled to Miami for Art Basel and performed with Mobile Performance Group, our student-faculty new media collective. The performance was the culmination of a semester spent working in DIGA 398 for seven Junior and Senior majors in Digital Arts. You can learn a lot more about the trip here or get a taste of what it was like from this video:
The Digital Arts faculty/student collective know as MPG: Mobile Performance Group has been invited to perform at the 12 Nights Electronic Music and Art festival at the Harold Golen Gallery, Miami, FL. We will perform Thursday night (12.01.11) at 8:00 pm. This performance will feature work by students Kim Crawford, Dan Duval, Joe Flanagan, Mark Kisch, Hunter Lee, Philip Meisner, Meg Spivey and faculty Matt Roberts and Nathan Wolek. If you are attending Art Basel please make sure to stop by to experience our performance and say hello.
