"As an interactive communication design program, the MassArt Dynamic Media Institute (DMI) aims to encourage dialogue within the fields of art, design, technology, and science. FreshMedia is an annual showcase of all the artists/designers in the program from diverse backgrounds in engineering, fine arts, computer programming, graphic/industrial design and advertising. Pieces include interactive and dynamic work ranging from computer based imagery, aural soundscapes, data visualization, and even game-like storytelling. Since the focus of the work created by DMI is on creating experiences, the students in the program rely heavily on critical user analysis. Tangible results not only enable a better understanding and development of specific project work, but also assist in the expansion of the fields of interaction and communication design. By sharing their playful, yet though-provoking work, DMI hopes to engage with the community at large, asking people to question their place in the midst of this dynamic society we live in." [Source]
