Through use of latest multimedia technologies, which are also integrated into the curriculum and will be taught in the class of Assoc Professor Ina Conradi, this project also aims to explore new terrains to enhance digital interactive media and fine art expressions. Conceived with a vision to showcase digital interactive artworks, MAN is created to promote interdisciplinary collaborations in art, design, science, medicine and engineering technologies. MAN is a channel for discourse, exchange, participation and novel expression of the NTU community, local and international artists, scientists, researchers, cultural and art institutions. MAN aims to enhance students’ learning experience and vibrancy on campus. This public art installation is a project of NTU Museum, and is built in collaboration with Associate Professor Ina Conradi- Chavez and new media artist Mark Chavez.
