The New Media Artspace at Baruch College presents Defy the Domain, a group exhibition led by the Spring 2020 Capstone class of the New Media Arts undergraduate minor. The exhibition is comprised of original works created and curated by New Media Arts students Bryan Campana, Afsara Chowdhury, Kaitlyn Chiu, Femi Fagbemi, Ruth Jean-Lubin, Jason Jiggetts, Mushan Khan, Lauren Lee, Wendy Lei, Qiao Ting Liu, Noran Omar, Joanne Pan, Adyan Rahman, Danica Raz, Maryam Saad, Priscilla Shum, and Qi Qi Wu.
Defy the Domain is a collective interpretation of the ever-evolving relationship between humans and technology. Originally created as a tool for humans, the exponential rate of technological adoption has resulted in the blurring of lines between creator and creation. Technology's ability to shape humanity is on par with the human capability of shaping technology. Breaking down the anthro-technological relationship reveals the intricate dependence both participants have for each other. The works are organized topically in three sections: "User," "Protocol," and "Networks." A fourth section of the exhibition, "Safe Mode," showcases a collaborative work jointly created to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic that emerged during the course of this semester.
The New Media Artspace will host a live premiere of the website from 1:30–3:00 PM, 11 May 2020 on YouTube. Members of the public are welcome to attend and may RSVP through the link here.
