School of Visual Arts presents the fourth annual “Digital Short Story: Small Bytes / Big Fiction,” an exhibition of work by MFA Visual Narrative students. Curated by faculty members Jim Rugg and Mark Sable, “Digital Short Story: Small Bytes / Big Fiction” is on view Wednesday, May 17, through Wednesday, June 7, at the SVA Flatiron Project Space, 133/141 West 21st Street, New York City.
In MFA Visual Narrative’s Digital Short Story (DSS), each student is charged with channeling their inner author and narrative designer. Their task is to create, write, and present an original, self-published digital short story in 15 weeks. Subject matter, style, and digital format design are integral parts of project development and the creative process. The only true parameters are length, the use of text and image, and the challenge of telling a great story from concept to finish.
The goal of Digital Short Story is to foster ambitious and exciting new voices in visual storytelling through interaction with faculty and peers.
The MFA Visual Narrative program at SVA is an innovative approach to visual storytelling through the education of the artist as author. Equal emphasis is placed on creative writing and visual expression regardless of medium. The program is designed for working professionals and students from all creative disciplines who are interested in incorporating visual narrative and creator-owned-authorship into their art and professional practice.
The SVA Flatiron Project Space, located at 133/141 West 21st Street, is open Monday through Friday, 9:00am to 7:00pm, and Saturday, 10:00am to 6:00pm. It is fully accessible by wheelchair. Admission is free.
