Nettrice Gaskins Digital Media Ph.D ’14 currently a STEAM Lab Director at Boston Arts Academy was recently featured in Future Perfect: Flux Factory’s Intersectional Approach to Technology
Excerpt from article:
“Nettrice Gaskins utilizes VR technology to great effect with The Electrofunk Mixtape (2017), a boisterous rollercoaster of light and sound. Experiencing Gaskins’s creation is like attending a jazz festival while tripping on acid. Colorful fireworks explode to the rhythm of the beat, producing a wonderful synesthetic atmosphere. The work suggests that the digital may not be as spiritually empty as we think, but rather presents opportunities for rousing transcendence.”
