Gary Corvi, Future, and Past


Jeremy Struckel, cy·ber·space



Mackenzie Leatherman, untitled

In looking forward to a time where things are exciting and joyful again, I have created my own worlds to escape to. Through bright and stark colors, deep saturation and the overlapping of patterns, I have turned simple home photos of landscapes and broken-down structures and turned them into a new reality.


Sara Miskus, Window to the Past

Since starting college, I have lived in six different places spanning the states of West Virginia, Ohio, and Iowa. My concept of home has been continually changing.  I used to be very nostalgic about the past, which is why this image depicts me framed in a photograph, running back to my childhood home.The imagery is a mix from college and my hometown, as I used to feel very torn between the two.


Abby Koskinas, untitled

For this GIF series I aimed to visualize the experience of dance movement using texture, shape, and color. Witnessing a dance is only half of the story, and non-dancers rarely get to experience what movement is like. I wanted to go beyond visually capturing a motion, by creating an environment that elicits the feeling/energy of each movement. By juxtaposing linear and organic structures, I hoped to capture the interplay of the internal and external experiences of dancing. Additionally, dancing is very routine for me. For the past four years I have basically danced at the same time every day, so the cyclical nature of the GIF captures that feeling.

Avery Stratman, Red Shift

The overarching theme of this series is “Red Shift”, where masses traveling at high speeds will appear blue if approaching an observer. This is because the wavelengths of light are compressing as the object closes distance rapidly. And conversely, said mass will appear more red as it travels away because these wavelengths are then stretching.


Carina Geissler, 20/20 Vision


Yasmine Kashubeck, Squares, and Circles

This series is the combined effort of my computer and me. It was created entirely with code that utilized triangles, squares, or circles to create complex visuals. In the code I wrote out most of the details for each piece, but I made sure to leave room for my computer to make some choices as well. We worked together to make each piece unique and complex, with both of us working on different elements in each one.


Gideon Smiley, Habitual Harm

I wanted to create a physical representation of the molding and eroding that occurs in our brains when we form habits and addictions. I wanted to bring a tactility to the often intangible, and display the real physical harm and risk that can occur within the head. I attempt to do this by bringing abstract representation of the mind into combination with tactile, bodily textures that display harm.


Yueyang Zhang, Mountain, Ocean, and Clouds


Delia Sconce, Take Me Away With the Wind  //  Clair Huff, untitled portrait



Jakaysha Williams, bliss, turbulence, peace

This final project I chose to explorethe story of a relationship I had with a friend through digitally modified images edited in Photoshop. I wanted to capture the emotions and feelings I experienced through this journey. Throughout all three pieces you can see connection between the usage of technology, written notes, and nature.


Madison Shimborske, Red Light, Green Light   //  Kendall Mabee, Between Two Realms


Kailey Mayhood, Navigating

The path one takes changes constantly. And the different paths that people take overlap, intersect and diverge. To capture this concept in a series of images, I used several photographs I took in different cities and parks in different countries from trips with family and friends, combined with a charcoal line tool, that represents the start and fading of a course one may take.


Michelle Chen, Obsessive

I wanted to express the overbearing presence of technology in our daily lives. While our current technology carries many advantages, it also has the ability to become a barrier, preventing people from engaging in meaningful interactions. With these pieces, I wanted to reveal the dark side of digital media as distracting and obsessive.
