Students' Digital & Traditional Art on Display at Ball State's Bracken Library

The first floor display cases at Bracken Library, Ball State University Libraries, house a unique art exhibit where students have integrated digital media and traditional materials to explore symmetry.

Students in Prof. Barbara Giorgio’s Foundations 101 class began the project by using Adobe Photoshop to create snowflake, butterfly, and Rorschach designs. Then they replicated their computer-generated designs by using materials such as beads, feathers, buttons, seeds, copper, cloth, and even stained glass.

“The students were enthused to display their artwork at Bracken,” Prof. Giorgio said. “There is a sense of pride in creating art and knowing others are able to view it.”

The display includes both the digital print-out and the final project of 14 students. The exhibit is scheduled to run through March, 2007.
