Opening Reception: Thursday, April 16 from 6-9pm
The Visual Arts & Technology program at Stevens Institute of Technology is thrilled to announce “Threshold,” the senior capstone exhibition. Featuring work by seven emerging artists and designers, the exhibition will be held at Barsky Gallery in Hoboken, New Jersey from April 15-23, 2015.
This exhibition features a range of work being made at the intersection of art, design, technology, and entrepreneurship. Elisa Iribarne Brieva’s acrylic portraits explore emotional states through the use of texture and color. Filmmaker Jay Simms’ short videos incorporate elements of music video, experimental cinema, and art history. Julian Chaves uses projection mapping, sculpture, and custom-built electronics to turn the viewer’s heartbeat into an audio-visual experience. Sarah Quiles, founder of Grumpy Quills, will show her line of “Shadow Creatures” stuffed animals and related branding materials. Dylan Clark’s animation features dreaming animals and empty landscapes to build a continuous and flowing narrative. Tino Ivezaj, a designer, updates iconic albums in LP and CD format with his unique minimalist style. For the past year, filmmaker Dan Zambrano has followed a 65-year-old comedian from Queens for his documentary film project.
The Visual Arts & Technology program, part of the College of Arts & Letters at Stevens Institute of Technology, merges the visual arts with technology, engineering, science, and business as well as humanities disciplines. Drawing on traditional and emerging art forms, students make work that pushes the boundaries of art and design.
