Student accomplishments

Julie Libersat "CADD FUNd: Winner Takes All" award

Julie Libersat, winner of the Contemporary Art Dealers of Dallas 2014 “CADD FUNd: Winner Takes All” event. Julie presented ROAM, a proposal for a mobile phone interactive urban exploration game. Players use the mobile app to get lost in the city and then document their journey as a form of narrative mapping using photo, video, audio and written capture. The project will be a creative tool that uses disorientation as a part of the artistic process prompting aesthetic engagement and challenging ideas of spatial cognition and orientation. Libersat’s work depicts space as a way of knowing and embodying the city though pedagogical notions of play.
