Edith O'Donnell Arts and Technology Building
UT Dallas Campus

Students and faculty in the School of Arts & Humanities and the School of Arts, Technology & Emerging Communication, as well as participants from the School of Engineering & Computer Science, invite the campus and surrounding community to experience current research and examples of student productivity, especially those that include an interactive, multi-modal experience. Students have embraced the Edith O'Donnell Arts & Technology Building as a vehicle for exhibition and public engagement as they take their current projects from the classroom into a public arena in this second annual art and technology festival, ART FAIR 2016. Projects range from video art to photography, from animation to interactive games, from creative projects involving networked environments to research in the interactions between art and science, from large scale painting to soundscapes. Events include presentations on motion capture and emerging media, an electronic music performance, a model treasure hunt, and performance art.

Exhibitions and presentations will be on view April 1, 2016 from 12:00 p.m. noon until 6:00 p.m., in the Edith O’Donnell Arts & Technology Building on The University of Texas at Dallas campus.

Azra Riaz
Faculty Sponsor: Greg Metz
The installation project "Non-Perishable" has been created as a collage of material in a floating temporal and spatial arrangement. Found materials interact visually to recreate the time of their original and useful presence, while retaining their presence in the present space and time. The aim is to hint at the biographical imprint of wood as a significant part of the natural surroundings, and the devastating effects of rapid deforestation on the environment.

FML is a video installation exploring the inner psyche of a typical female. Two videos run concurrently, side by side on video monitors,. One video features the more superficial, lighter side of life, while the other portrays a more raw, emotional display. The juxtaposition of the two videos intends to provide provocative insight into the private thoughts of one woman in a secluded realm, the shower, alone with her naked thoughts.
