Wed. Dec. 8: Fixation Collaboration at the DMDS

A week from today, on December 8th, the Digital Media Design Studio will celebrate the opening of a new student photo exhibit. The photography collection, Adverse Collaboration, will be unveiled and on display through February 2011 and will feature the work of Joyce Lin and Misha Thomas, two student photographers with very different styles.  Their pictures will display contrasting world views and lifestyles through images of New England and Ghana. Accompanying the unveiling will be a performance by the Nor’easters who are releasing their new CD, “Aural Fixation.”  The Nor’easters are the premier co-ed a capella group at Northeastern University, and also the oldest student group on campus.  “Aural Fixation” is 100% Northeastern-made, recorded in Northeastern University studios with the help of other NU students.  All of the photography and promotion for the CD has also been made through the efforts of the Nor’easters, their fans, and fellow students. Be sure to attend this special event, Fixation Collaboration, and support the work of your peers! It’s all happening on Wednesday, December 8 from 11:45am to 1:30pm in the DMDS, located at 200 Snell.  Refreshments will be served.

DMDS Exhibit Showcases Sierra Smith, Photographer

Come to the DMDS to see the photographs of Sierra Smith, Journalism, ’14. This video highlights most of the photographs in the show. Curated by DMDS co-op Abigail Ochse, Digital Arts, ’12, this exhibit displays an expressive potpourri of vibrant images covering a range of subjects. Regarding her creativity, Sierra Smith wrote: “I don’t know if I’ve been working long enough to develop a style, but my work does tend toward the artistic, rather than the journalistic. It’s often fairly colorful, too. Though I would say I’m pleased with my portfolio, it’s been mostly limited by my camera; I’ve been using the same one for years, and it’s not exactly something a photographer would flaunt. Because of its quality, my work is often narrowed into a single style. However, it also forces me to compensate by looking for things that another photographer with better equipment may not see. While he’s letting the camera dictate his photograph, I’m letting my artistic vision do the honor.” Come see the show in person through the summer. If you are interested in exhibiting your work in the DMDS next fall, please contact Debra Mandel

Library of Congress joins the Flickr fun!

Do we have any Flickr fans out there? If you don’t know what Flickr is you must visit it at once. It is an online photo community. People can join and post their photos to show their friends and family or they can make them public for others to see and comment on. There are lots of groups on Flickr you can join, such as bird lovers where you can post your pictures of birds and others do as well and create a nice little community of people with similar interest in birds. Ok now that we know what flickr is, the Library of Congress now has an account! Along with their 530 miles of books shelves, the Library of Congress also has a fantastic photo collection. They have been uploading some of those photos to Flickr for the world to see, enjoy and comment on! They invite people to tag (a descriptive word for the photo) the photos as well.
