We are extremely pleased to welcome the two MICA students who will be joining HEMI for 2017 HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Summer Project/internship, Joshua Gleason and Nilam Sari. This is the third year that HEMI and MICA have hosted this program.
Joshua Gleason is an undergraduate at MICA with a major in Interactive Arts and a concentration in Animation. In his proposed project “Experiential Data: The Abstraction and Visualiszation of Complex Models Through the Use of Virtual Reality” he plans to explore different ways to experience information and data on a visual level.
Nilam Sari is a MICA undergraduate and toy designer majoring in Interdisciplinary Sculpture with a concentration in Graphic Design. Her project goals include discovering new possibilities in exisiting materials such as paper, corregated cardboard, Tyvek and Revlar by experimenting with different assembly and weaving techniques.
The Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute (HEMI) and the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) joined together in 2015 to create the HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts program. As one of the inaugural initiatives, the HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Summer Program/Internship presented the challenge of exploring visual representations of the HEMI organization, structure, current research, and relationships. Visual representations could include, but were not limited to: storyboarding and narrative, animation, photography, graphic design, interactive arts or products, games, information visualization, illustration, or drawing.
