Immersive 3D virtual environments have placed a extraordinary palette directly into hands of the creatives, offering opportunity for imagination and art that has produced an array of thrilling and innovative work.
Artists have responded with a jubilant chorus of digital creations, few with greater virtuosity than John Fillwalk, Director of the Institute for Digital Intermedia Arts Lab, at Ball State University. He is himself a celebrated digital artist, and provides the lead for his IDIA students, connecting the Lab’s work in digital art installations and exhibits around the globe, as well as working with corporate partners and virtual world innovators.
Guest host Jennette Forager welcomes John Fillwalk to Metanomics on November 29, at 12pm pst to review recent work and sample the many projects of the BSU IDIA Lab.
