This website will serve as a place to showcase the work that I am doing on Art and Interactivity. This work is my Thesis for My MFA in Digital Arts at Goucher College. Accompanying the Thesis document that will be published in early August, I will also be previewing pieces that will be presented at my MFA Show at ArtFarm in Annapolis MD in late July. Details on the show will be updated on this site; as well as, the Hylantown Home Page as soon as possible. Below are examples of some of the work made specifically for the web using Processing. Directions for each piece are below the picture/link.
