In My Proxy

May 12 - August 31, 2021

In My Proxy surveys student works from ARTS 1107: Intro to Digital Drawing, referring to how digital artists often express themselves through avatars and personas, and the unique ways they can negotiate self-representation online. Instructors Christopher Corey Allen, Louise Fisher, and Mark Schoening, guided students this Spring through a variety of digital media and applications—including illustration, rotoscope and frame animation, timeline animation, and digital fabrication using the XYZ Lab and e-Studio. Interestingly, while many of these students have not interacted with one another, their collective experiences of remote learning, intermittent quarantine, and digital media cohesively weave together recurring themes of pop culture, fantasy, technology, isolation, and domestic daily life.

Artists in the exhibition include Anthony Aviza, Isabelle Ayaz, Linnea Baerenwald, JJ Barclay, Sam Benscoter, Grace Biglow, Weiss Boyer, Sebastian Brauer, Barbara Rogers, Kimberly Campo, Emily Chak, Ren Collins, Yoav Desalegn, Calista Dunbar, Karen Gustafson, Tanavia Harrington, Amy Hilsen, Abby Hinrichs, Gabrielle Holton, Joey Jensen, Andrew Kawas, Ping Kuang, Renee Liu, Houaci Lor, Gideon Lundin, Lila Madson, Fiona McNeil, Oo Meh, Fatuma Mohamud, Fantasia Moore, Jake Nasers, Sally Nelson, Ephrem Nguyen, Snow Chen Pang, Kamryn Schmeltzer, Jillian Slater, Michael Thao, Maya Thariani, Ethan Tran, Nate Van Remortel, Chris Vue, Irene Wang, Caroline White, and Alisa Zudov.

View the following animations by Linnea Baerenwald, Grace Biglow, Yoav Desalegn, Joey Jensen, Fantasia Moore, Sally Nelson, Kamryn Schmeltzer, Jillian Slater, Ethan Tran, Chris Vue, Irene Wang, Alisa Zudov, and a collaborative animation by Christopher Corey Allen's students.
