    From April 17th until April 28th, every Alfred University student will be given the opportunity to participate in this year's Campus Climate Survey on Sexual Assault and Sexual Misconduct. The primary goal of the survey is to provide our community with information to inform policies to prevent and respond to sexual assault and misconduct. The survey was designed to assess the incidence, prevalence and characteristics of incidents of sexual assault and misconduct. It also assesses the overall climate of the campus with respect to perceptions of risk, knowledge of resources available to victims and perceived reactions to an incident of sexual assault or misconduct. We hope everyone will take 15 minutes and provide your feedback.

  • Alfred Today

    In an opinion piece published in the Sunday edition of the Democrat and Chronicle, and in an expanded version on-line, Alfred University President Mark Zupan writes about the role private colleges and universities, including Alfred University, have in making higher education possible for those with modest family incomes.

    The athletic department led by the football program will be hosting a bone marrow drive registration this Wednesday, April 26. The registration will take place from 11am to 2 pm in the Knight Club in Powell. We are asking all students, faculty & staff and community members to strongly consider registering. It requires nothing more than signing some forms and swiping a Q-Tip swab in your mouth. That simple task could literally save someone's life who is suffering from different forms of Blood Cancer, like Leukemia. We have set a goal of trying to get 300 registrations across campus. All registrants must be between 18-44 years old. We will provide fresh popcorn and bottled water for anyone that stops by. Please let me know if you have any questions.

    William Newman-Wise's MFA thesis show consists of sculpture, photography, and a book.

    A is face down, nude, in front of C.

    C sits cross-legged on my studio chair.

    BACK is written in pencil on a plywood cutout.


    C stretches his arm out to A.

    A holds the mirror.

    W is in the reflection.


    "sweat silhouette" explores the artist directing through photography and being directed through sculpture.


    Slowness pervades my touch and movements through the studio and minutes walking home. Images and objects move fluidly between abstraction and representation. Focus emerges and slips away. The physical and emotional distance between two people echoes a lingering tension in my studio between myself as photographer, myself as

    sculptor, myself and material, and image and object.

    The IEA welcomes Zorica Colic of New York, NY, as our artist in residence over the week of May 8th. Zorica, who received her MFA from the Electronic Integrated Arts program of the New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Zorica's work researches how contemporary life is structured and manipulated, with particular emphasis on the implications of the biopolitical management of human life. Through various hybridized forms of display, her works explore the complex relationships between politics, art and consumer worlds, examining how our lives are regulated or defined by taste, by products, and by mass-distributed role models. The goal is to identify new ways to subvert normative mass culture in order to re-contextualize images and signs that have become inflated from over-proliferation.

    During her residency Zorica intends to further develop a video project titled Well-beings. These videos bring into focus a person defragmenting into commodity through the technological virtual, while investigating themes such as subtle manipulation of human emotions and behavior admist current conditions that are hyper-mediated, and increasingly focused on self-presentation. A face no longer functions as the site of identity but rather a terrain equally inhabited by intimacy, familiarity, strangeness, and the anxiety. For her residency, Zorica plans to extend her project into a multi-channel video installation with surround sound, presenting different "heads" or "creatures" put into a conversation.

    The Institute for Electronic Art's Visiting Artist Program is sponsored in part by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
