Art + Technology Associate Professor Katerie Gladdys and fourth-year undergraduate student Adreenah "Dreezy" Wynn (art + technology and graphic design) were recently interviewed by Orange & Blue Magazine, a University of Florida student-run magazine. The article, “Technology Creates Endless Artistic Avenues,” highlights the opportunities new technology provides for artistic expression. Wynn, born with Sickle Cell Disease, found that computer-generated art provided her with both an emotional and creative outlet during hospital visits at a young age.
Orange & Blue's Shayna Tanen discusses how Wynn's artwork expresses identity and confronts social issues. Gladdys notes in the article, “One thing I like about Adreenah’s artwork is it’s not necessarily beautiful, but it’s art that makes us think differently about the world that we live in. About her world. About worlds that touch each other.”
