Congratulations to Tila Assgari and Seth Izen who have been selected as the 2016 HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Interns!
Tila, an Interdisciplinary Sculpture major, plans to use her knowledge of materials to explore the flexibility and stability of certain materials when they are manipulated in different ways.
Seth, an Animation major, plans to use his skills to create an educational animation that explains a specific part of HEMI’s research to the nonscientific public.
The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program brings faculty and students from both institutions together to explore unique perspectives on extreme events. The program aims to encourage collaboration among artists and researchers to examine data, interpret outcomes, and translate results from extreme events in new ways. The summer internship aims to explore visual representations of the HEMI organization, structure, current research, and relationships.
The HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts interns will work on their projects from June – August and will present their final works sometime in the fall.
