    Ever wonder what a day in the life of a German college student is like? (College is tuition-free, students are paid by their employer to go to school half the year and work the other half.) How humans and robots can work together? How businesses compete for customer market share globally? What it is like to be inside a medieval city? What makes Munich one of the most popular cities to visit in Europe? How the automobile evolved over the past 100+ years? What would it be like to see two of the most extensive car collections in the world?

    All these will be covered in the Allen Term 2018 class on the German Auto Industry. If you are interested, come to an information session March 21 or 21 at 4:45 pm in Olin 301, or the Bergren Forum on March 23.

    The Institute for Electronic Arts at the School of Art and Design of the New York State College of Ceramics

    Sponsored by Committee or Division: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media
    The IEA welcomes Zorica Colic of New York, NY, as our artist in residence over the week of March 20th. 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.

    Sponsored by: The Institute for Electronic Arts and the Division of Expanded Media

    Ray Ferreira, of Brooklyn, NY, will be at the Institute for Electronic Arts for an artist residency over the week of March 13th. Ray, who received his MFA from Hunter College in 2016, uses Englishes, Spanishes, and body languages to explore ways, which his body is manifested and manifests worlds, and ways his body aims to create a different ontoepistoethics. He views his texts as modular, pieces coming into and out of existence, stretching across spaces, times, and matters.
    During his residency, Ray intends to explore his texts using the IEA's analog and digital tools to further explore his texts and create new mixes. He will be experimenting with what happens when the spiral goes out of control - as in different systems - exploring what happens when audiovisual textures weave in and out as the text dances around.
