A visit to LIU’s MFA program is making me happy

On Tuesday night I had the pleasure of visiting Ryan Seslow’s class in New Media Arts to discuss my work with his MFA students. It was a great group and we discussed a lot of the issues around being an artist and how to make decisions about putting work up on the web.

I was able to give a quick demo of the processes I use to create a variety of glitch aesthetic GIFs which I primarily post to my Tumblr.
