Faculty Spotlight: Technology + Fine Art Intersect

In the fast-growing realm where the boundaries between art and technology blur, two Cleveland Institute of Art professors are on the leading edge of using new technology to create fine art in an unprecedented way.

Tune in to the Cleveland PBS/WVIZ arts and culture program Applause this Thursday, June 3, at 7:30pm to watch CIA faculty members Scott Ligon and Kasumi discuss their revolutionary work. [Update: watch the recording online.]

Ligon, Coordinator of the Institute’s digital foundation curriculum and author of Digital Art Revolution: Creating Fine Art with Photoshop, discusses his book and the growing phenomenon of creating fine art with new technology.

Kasumi, T.I.M.E. - Digital Arts Professor and video artist, discusses her internationally acclaimed multimedia technique and some of her work that is featured in Ligon’s book.

T.I.M.E. student John Spofford ’12 was also interviewed for the segment, as his digital landscape paintings also show up in the book.

Read a behind-the-scenes article about the Applause interview on Ligon’s Digital Art Revolution blog, digitalartrevolution.com. To find out more about Ligon’s work, RSVP for a special lecture and book signing at MOCA Cleveland on June 9 at 6pm.

Read more about Kasumi’s recent work in the CIA Media Center. Or get her personal perspective through an interview Ligon conducted and published on his blog.

Applause is an Emmy award-winning, locally-produced TV show that celebrates artists and cultural groups around Cleveland and Northeast Ohio. Each week this on-air arts magazine broadcasts a fresh half-hour of features, performances, on-location reports and interviews. Applause airs on WVIZ/PBS and the Ohio Channel.

In the Institute’s T.I.M.E. - Digital Arts program (for Technology and Integrated Media Environment), students explore the relationship between art, design, and technology. They harness digital technology to create animations, interactive media (web media, CD-ROMs, DVD-ROMs), game design, interactive installations (performance, robotics, sound) and video/special effects.
