This sounds like fun.

Experimental Digital Arts at UCLA.
iotaCenter’s mission is to inspire both new and existing artists in a historically dispersed and constantly changing technological environment.
The theme for our next iotaSalon is THE CITY. We will be investigating the way urban environments are depicted in abstract and experimental works. How does construction influence image creation? How does the urban environment surrounding an artist inform or invade their work? How does the process of abstraction change our view of the city? How have architectural tools and thinking affected abstract and experimental moving images?
