School of Visual Arts presents Left to Devices, an exhibition of videos, prints, drawings, and interactive installations by MFA Computer Arts’ students, faculty and alumni.  Curated by current MFA Computer Arts student Tiger Mackie and Lotte Marie Allen, department project coordinator, the exhibition will be on view from Saturday, October 20, through Wednesday November 21, at the SVA Flatiron Gallery 133/141 West 21st Street, New York City. 

Left to Devices examines the relationship between the human touch and machines. The artists in this exhibition create work that explore our response to a world saturated with imagery and noise. By sifting through different layers of time and space in her films, Sakshi Jain challenges the linear qualities of traditional animation. John Benton redefines the graphic novel by transposing his stories into a virtual experience. Min Liu refashions previous concepts of the original zoetrope using record players to display her work. These artists, along with many others, set the stage for the conceptual framework and feeling of the exhibition.

Artists in this exhibition include:
Students: Yixin Cheng, Sakshi Jain, Kangmin Lim, and Alice Tsai
Faculty: John Benton, Anney Bonney, and Terry Dame
Alumni: Ninaad Kulkarni (2017), in collaboration with Anagh Banerjee (MFA 2018 Illustration as Visual Essay), Min Liu (2013), and Joy Tien (2014)
