The 2021 graduating class of the UC San Diego Visual Arts ICAM (Interdisciplinary Computing and the Arts) program is proud to announce this year's Senior Exhibition.

The Senior Exhibition (VIS 160) is a two quarter-long course required by all graduating ICAM students, where students pursue projects of their own design with support from faculty in a seminar environment. Their projects are a culmination of what students have learned throughout their time in the ICAM program, utilizing the skills and technologies they have learned along the way, to make their own masterpiece.

This show features works including electronic installations, virtual reality, animations, video games, coding art, projection mapping, performances, and much more. Come join us in celebrating the diverse body of work that the ICAM program has produced this year!

What is ICAM?

The ICAM program in both the Visual Arts and Music departments draws upon and aims to bring together ideas and paradigms from computer science, art, and cultural theory. The departments take for granted that the computer has become a meta-medium and that artists and musicians working with computers are expected to combine different media forms in their works. This makes the program unique among other existing computer art or design programs.

The program also recognizes that creating sophisticated artistic works with computers requires a new model of the creative process, one that combines traditional artistic procedures with the experimental research characteristic of the sciences.
