This video was produced in late 2011 by three MFA in Emergent Media students in their first semester in the program. Ross Gracia, Alex Daly, and Jessica Lynch have since successfully graduated from the program, but their short film still wonderfully encapsulates the question, “What is Emergent Media?”.
Evolving. Invented and reinvented. Impact. Interplay. Communication. Technology. Dynamic. All of those things. There’s no boxed-in definition of emergent media. That’s the beauty of it, really. The collision of art, media, and technology has never been more exciting or moving more quickly than it is now.
“If you’re not paying attention to emergence…if you’re not trying to figure it out – you are basically checking out of the most dynamic time in human history.” – Dr. Jeff Rutenbeck. We agree.
Anything you’d like to add? What do you think emergent media is? What’s next?
