Digital Arts Lecture Series: Nick Pedersen
October 2 12:45 PM – 1:45 PM
“Art in the Age of Digital Manipulation”
Nick Pedersen is a photo-based digital artist and illustrator whose work primarily focuses on nature and environmental issues. A main theme in his work is “beautiful decay,” creating elaborate, photorealistic pieces that reveal a satirically, post-apocalyptic vision of the not-too-distant future. His artwork has been shown in galleries across the country and internationally, recently including the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Paradigm Gallery, and Arch Enemy Arts. He has published two artist books featuring his long-term personal projects Sumeru and Ultima, and his work has been featured in numerous publications such as Vogue, Create Magazine, Juxtapoz, and Hi-Fructose.
The Department of Digital Arts Lecture Series is a seasonal series organized by the Department of Digital Arts in the School of Art at Pratt Institute. The series features critics, artists, and curators of digital art. The guests include both emerging talent and established pioneers in the fields of digital animation, motion arts, interactive artwork, and digital imaging.
This lecture series is free and open to the public; however, seating is limited.
