The Digital Media Center has two reasons to celebrate this week. Not only will the DMC mark its 15th anniversary with a speaker panel and open house this weekend, but today it will launch its much-anticipated Research Remix exhibit.
Now in its second year, Research Remix pairs Johns Hopkins academics with Baltimore artists, who interpret the investigator's research visually. Organized by DMC multi-media specialist Benjamin Andrew, this year's installment features 19 student and faculty researchers—including astrophysicist Richard Anderson, Sanchita Balachandran and her study of two ancient Roman Egyptian mummy portraits, and paleontologist Rachel Frigot—with 16 student and professional artists, including JHU undergraduate Morris Mou, a class of MICA students, Loyola University studio arts professor Janet Maheer, and Timothy Nohe, director of UMBC's Center for Innovative Research in the Creative Arts.
The Research Remix juried exhibition features works chosen by medical illustrator and Johns Hopkins Department of Art as Applied to Medicine assistant professor Jennifer Fairman; Washington, D.C. curator Marnie Benny; and Baltimore beat-boxer Shodekeh. The exhibit opened Monday in Gallery Q of the MSE Library, with a reception planned today from 5-7 p.m.
For Alumni Weekend 2016, the DMC hosts a pair of events on Saturday at its Mattin Center home. The first, from 3-4:30 p.m., is the Creating Careers panel discussion, co-sponsored by the Career Center and featuring five recent graduates—Eric Chung ('09), David Golan ('07), Matt Sterling ('07), Ramon Taylor ('10), and Brigitte Warner ('09)—who used the DMC's resources to learn communications skills they're currently using in the workplace. Following the panel, the DMC holds a 15th anniversary open house from 4-6 p.m.
