Student projects on display in ATLAS

ATLAS building fills with art

As the spring semester is coming to a close, the ATLAS building is alive with installations of Technology, Arts and Media (TAM) capstone student projects on the walls throughout the first and second floors, on the video wall, outside LCD video panels and the lobby kiosks.

Above, Carolyn Scott, a film production/film critical studies student, says her TAM project, entitled "Recycling Originality," is a "visual investigation into the filmic influences that shaped James Cameron's 'Avatar.'" The artwork contains 3,600 frames from about 40 sources, with each one referencing Avatar visually or contextually.

Graduation is Thursday, May 6

Students in the Technology, Arts and Media program will graduate during ceremonies starting at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 6, in the Cofrin Auditorium.
Forty-six students will be graduating with a minor degree in Technology, Arts and Media (TAM), and nine will graduate with the TAM digital media certificate.
