New Media Exhibition in Yonkers
New Media students in Professor Brooke Singer’s course, Photography Expanded, have been working from Purchase College Center for Community and Culture (PC4) and collaborating throughout the semester with Yonkers organizations such as Community Voices Heard, The Center for the Urban River at Beczak, and Groundwork, among others.
They have been researching issues that shape Yonkers, and all cities: affordability, homelessness, sustainability and change.
The students will present their culminating art works in the exhibition A Dwelling Place at PC4 on May 6 from 12–4pm during Yonkers Arts Weekend.
Projects include video, virtual reality, interactive installations and photo essays.
Artist and Assistant Professor of New Media at Purchase, Victoria Estok, will join the class to lead a microradio broadcast experiment.
