Students ages 18 and under may submit work to CURRENTS 2014 at no charge. Youth Media Makers may apply in any category. The deadline for student submissions is April 5, 2014.
CURRENTS’ curators look for the unique ways artists use technology as a tool for expression and communication, and ways that scientists, programmers and developers are integrating the arts and aesthetics into their explorations and projects.
