School of Visual Arts presents ZERO:ONE, an exhibition that brings together selected thesis projects from graduating MFA Computer Art students. Curated by Hsiang Chin Moe, assistant to the MFA Computer Art chair, the exhibition is on view May 27 through June 7 at the SVA Chelsea Gallery, 601 West 26th Street, 15th floor, New York City.

ZERO:ONE explores the different themes and media of digital art.” In this annual event, MFA Computer Art graduating students showcase their talents to communicate stories and concepts,” Moe says. “This exhibition is the next step in the evolution of our students’ work,” says Bruce Wands, MFA Computer Art chair. “It includes 3D animation, motion graphics, experimental video, interactive installations and digital fine art. What makes it unique is the multidisciplinary artistic approach of our graduates.”

The exhibition showcases graduates’ unique approaches to the themes and modes of creative self-expression. All thesis projects incorporate a variety of media, materials and cutting-edge technologies to address a broad range of topics, including a story of a rock band, with four puppet characters animated in stop motion, by Xiaoxiao Tang; a mixed-media installation that combines video projection mapping and sculpture by digital fine artist Harsha Biswajit; and a short story about two dolls coming to life at night in a toy shop, by 3D animator Chun Wei Kuo. Participating artists make use of programming languages, digital fabrication methods, artificial intelligence, computer vision, human-computer interaction and traditional art production methods to realize their creations.

MFA Computer Art at SVA emphasizes creativity and a multidisciplinary approach to making art with computers and emerging technologies. Dedicated to producing digital artists of the highest caliber, the department guides each student in the development of a personal artistic style in a course of study that is individually tailored to meet his or her needs. Students come from around the world to study in this two-year, 60-credit program, which has distinguished itself with seven Student Academy Awards.
