Intervenir la imagen... o el espejo m?gico (Intervene the image... or the magic mirror)
"A technology is interactive to the degree that it reflects the consequences of our actions or decisions back to us. It follows that an interactive technology is a medium through which we communicate with ourselves... a mirror" The purpose of this work is to explore the implications of interactive media through the review of "Utop?a" digital, an interactive piece that explore the implied transformation of the relationship between art and audience and new forms of perception. The artists' role is

The Transformative Power of the Arts
JaLinda Dunovant believes that the world would be a better place if more people could experience the transformative power of the arts. This is because Dunovant's involvement in arts and culture activities has had a profound impact on her own life. Since arriving at Penn two years ago, the rising junior from Staten Island, N.Y. has acted in an African American Arts Alliance production called "The Story," worked on costume design for the production of "Aida," and gained a deep appreciation of Phi
