More than 200 entries exhibited at "Downtown Digital Arts Festival"

Last evening, I had the pleasure of attending the Downtown Digital Arts Festival, presented by Columbus State Community College.

The exhibit brought together student photographers, designers, and artists, for an event designed to educate, inspire, and entertain.

Here’s a description from the Interactive Media section:
  the work “embraces the advances in technology that provide new and exciting frontiers for artistic exploration, expression and communication. Images, both moving and static, text and audio can be brought together within a computer to provide an experience that is essentially different from any other media type. The quality that distinguishes 'digital' publishing from traditional linear forms is 'interactivity'. Program content need no longer be constrained by a fixed, preordained outcome. An audience can now be an active participant in a program in ways that determine and alter the course of events. “

The Interactive Media worked in the exhibit demonstrated practical applications that access and present dynamic written, audio, and visual information. The interactivity was applied across a varied range of mediums including:
  • educational and self-paced learning projects on a CD
  • displays and information kiosks
  • web sites
  • computer games and simulations
  • interactive art
  • DVD development
