Arts+Tech Night is an end-of-the-semester showcase featuring new work from students in the Interdisciplinary Arts & Technology (IAT) Program that gives students access to faculty and facilities from several departments in the Peck School of the Arts.

From 6-9 p.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 18, students will transform four floors in the Kenilworth East Building into a dynamic perform­ance and gallery space, showcasing a variety of interactive and technologically mediated artwork.
This semester, the event showcases media-rich performances from the Movement and New Media class team-taught by Associate Professor Luc Vanier, Department of Dance, and Professor Cecelia Condit, Department of Film, Video, Animation and New Genres.

Additional work will be on display from Lecturer Patrick Lichty’s interactive installation students in the Department of Art and Design, and Associate Lecturer Kelly Bronikowski’s video installation class in the Department of Film, Video, Animation and New Genres.

Seniors from Associate Lecturer David Witzling’s IAT capstone studio will exhibit short films. Cody Banks will show a short-form mockumentary about an imaginary Icelandic pop star. Chris House will screen a serious drama that was shot as a stop-motion animation made with Lego blocks.
