Student capstone projects on display

Artworks explore issues,
examine theories

Students in the ATLAS Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) capstone projects course design, implement, document and test a broad variety of advanced multimedia projects. Those projects go on display throughout the Roser ATLAS Building as the semester comes to a close. Among the projects is the one above by Heather White, a Sociology major. Her project, entitled "Triple Perception on a Dualistic Identity," explores a person in both physical and digital realms. In the top photo, an image of a digital identity can be seen mixed with an image of a physical identity when the artwork is viewed head-on. The lower photos show how only the digital identity is visible when the artwork is viewed from the left, and how only the physical identity is visible when the artwork is viewed from the right.
