Polymorphic-having or occurring in several forms.
This interdisciplinary exhibit is a celebration of a diverse, creative and multi-faceted group of young artists who are finding their way on the winding road of higher education through Massachusetts College of Art and Design’s Academic Compass Program.
Polymorphic also explores mobile learning through the creation of digital media: an interactive iPhone application that will include back stories of the student artists/participants, mobile tagging, and online social media. The iPhone app project is a collaboration between the MassArt Graphic Design Society, Academic Compass, and Technology.
