About the Current Exhibition
December 9, 2014February 3, 2015
Baruch College presents Immersion Reversion, an exhibit created by Baruch students Michael Blaine, Yuna Chong, Mohamed Hassan, Erica Ly, Rodney Nicot, Chanah Schnoll, and Wei Yang. This capstone exhibition represents the students’ completion of Baruch's New Media Arts minor.
The exhibit will open on December 9th and run through the February 3rd, 2015. An opening reception and informal discussion with the student artists will be held from 1:30-3:30 on Tuesday, December 9th in room 415 in the Newman Library.
Curated by the student artists, Immersion Reversion presents a diverse collection of works using the mediums of video, animation, sound and photography. Immersion Reversion seeks to explore themes of the unknown, unimagined, and unexplored in the pursuit of individual and collective truth. The artists immerse themselves into inner worlds, both real and virtual, human and inanimate, attempting to further define our shared experience. Simultaneously, elements of the ethereal, obscure, and secret are reverted outward for inspection under a new lens. For example, in Yuna Chong's Unforeseen End, the labor, and occasional futility of investing the self into the vessel of the dream is made manifest. The Perks of Being Polygon, a work by Michael Blaine, injects the artist into the world of video games to explore our ever expanding quest to escape more deeply into virtual spaces. Immersion Reversion is a diverse exhibit which invites the viewer to explore the poles of inner and outer experience.
The student artists completed their work under the supervision of Katherine Behar, Assistant Professor of New Media Arts at Baruch College.
