Artists express their ideals in different forms, but Tore Terrasi’s Experiments in Typography exhibit on NW Campus expresses a style called new media, said NW art associate professor Christian DeLeon.

New media is an upcoming style of art that many students and artists have begun to study, DeLeon said.

“A growing number of schools have this new discipline under interdisciplinary studies,” he said.

Many of Terrasi’s exhibited pieces show art through the creation of typeface and a combination of digital and graphical design aspects.

One unique piece projected on a wall is called “Experimental Animated Typography Collection,” which is also part of the new media class. The projection is a digital animation of different letters through strings where it looks as if the string letters are dissolving into nothing.

“Labyrinth” is another distinct piece as it shows digital print. This work is a new typeface with each letter made up of a maze.

Terrasi combines different types of style and media to create his art pieces. Creating something by combining many different media such as literature, graphic design, music and fine arts is what “new media” is all about, DeLeon said.

“The direction Tore Terrasi is going is what most students find interesting nowadays,” DeLeon said.

The works are on exhibit through Sept. 29 in WFAB Lakeview Gallery. Hours are 8 a.m.-10 p.m. Monday-Thursday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m. Friday and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday.
