Faculty, Students, and Artists will be collaborating to fill this area with multimedia documentation of Collage Initiative events. In addition the Collage classes will be posting new media modules of artwork.

Relating to Virginia Standards of Learning

Summer Arts @ the Museum collage website

UvaNewMedia is a virtual gallery, resource toolkit, and collaborative meeting space for new media artists of all disciplines at UVA. Each semester this site will grow and adapt to students needs, and serve as link to an international community of new media artists on the internet. This spring UvaNewMedia hosts collaborative efforts related to the Collage Initiative between the University of Virginia and the Philips Collection. UvaNewMedia website leads to individual class resources and results, and the "Collaborative Gallery" leads to the results of both classes working together. Visit and try the award winning Interactive Collage. Sixteen digital art students collaborated to create one dynamic installation. Each collage is created by user participation, and the narrative is discovered by exploring the mysterious containers.

Awe, Value, Punctum is a collaboration between digital arts and music students at the University of Virginia. Students went out into the world to find images and sound inspired by awe, and used digital technology to magnify and reflect upon their experience. The event featured eye tracking software that monitored viewers eye movements. The final projection was a collaboration between the viewer's eye, the artist's experience, and the musician's composition. Go >>

Punctum Photo Collective is an online collaboration between 20 digital artists who used vintage photographs from the 1930's to reflect on the "punctum" - a "partial object" or detail that attracts and holds the gaze and often inspires an intensely private meaning. Go >>
