CYFEST PRESENTS: CLOUDY WITH A CHANCE OF PIXELS – OPENING RECEPTION

The Made in NY Media Center by IFP is proud to once again partner with Cyfest for our December 2017 exhibition.

Cloudy with a Chance of Pixels is a collaborative work made specifically for the 27-screen video wall by Blake Marques Carrington’s Interactive Studio I class at Pratt Institute’sDepartment of Digital Arts. Taking inspiration from the festival theme of “Digital Cloudiness”, a team of 9 digital arts students explore ideas around pixelated nature, universal simulation, and the data cloud as a new form of environment. These young artists investigate possibilities for tearing open analog reality, finding consciousness and meditation in a torrent of data.

Tess Adams
