Exhibition: March 11th to March 13th, 2016

The Dynamic Media Institute (DMI) at Massachusetts College of Art and Design is a Master’s Program in Design made up of a diverse group of educators, computer programmers, engineers, fine artists, graphic and industrial designers. The projects and collaborative work produced by DMI students aim to explore the role of media technologies within the fields of art, design, interactivity, and communication. The main focus is on designing experiences with extreme empathy for users and participants, so the success of DMI projects rely heavily on research, user testing, and reflection. Tangible results not only provide the designers with a better understanding of the projects, but the feedback also aids in expanding the field of interaction design as a whole.

Emphasizing thought-provoking technology issues which affect so many of our lives, the experience of Fresh Media 2016 is far from the framework of a standard, non-interactive gallery exhibition. This hands-on gallery event encourages playful participation, whether it is interacting with visually pleasing projections, creating your own musical composition, or challenging your perception of social norms. Fresh Media is for experimenting, feeling, dancing, and exploring the future of communication design. Please join us for the interactive, user-focused, design phenomenon that is Fresh Media 2016!
