Digital Arts and New Media (DANM) at UC Santa Cruz presents Permutations, an MFA exhibition of ten graduate students whose artistic research employs advanced technologies for creative potential and social impact. This year's exhibition includes new media works that explore performativity, interactivity and participation. Through storytelling about places, times and players, these artists experiment with digital media to produce unforeseen outcomes and permutations. Their works probe fundamental questions and explore controlled and random mediated experience. A talk by Steve Dietz precedes the May 6 reception.
