Alumni Spotlight: Sarah Sachs 


Sarah received her BA in Studio Art from St. Mary's College of Maryland in 2006. In 2008, she received her Masters of Art in Digital Art from Maryland Institute College of Art, and in 2009 she received her Masters of Fine Art in Photography and Digital Imaging, also from Maryland Institute College of Art. Through her fine art work, Sarah explores the dichotomy between human and digital memory, how the two influence one another, and how they are affected by natural and technological elements of decay. She hopes to create a dialogue about the relationships between personal memory, society’s collective memory, and collective cultural identity.

ART 314: Advanced Digital Art                    back to courses index
Billy Friebele

This course takes as its foundation the concept that the expansion of the digital realm and time-based media has significantly altered the landscape of contemporary art. Artists are now creating new media works that challenge traditional notions of art as a static object in space, by integrating time-based practices and interactive digital components. Students taking this course will gain an understanding of contemporary artists focusing on new media and time-based art, while developing their own digital art practice. The technical focus of this course will be video, animation, sound, web-based artwork, interactivity and other new media practices. Classes will consist of research, discussion, studio projects, critiques and written work.

Prerequisite: ART 214. This course may be repeated once for credit.
