New DMA Faculty

To the DMA Community:

It is my pleasure to inform you that Lauren McCarthy will be joining us as a full-time Assistant Professor starting this summer. Lauren holds joint undergraduate degrees from MIT in Computer Science and Art and Design and a MFA from DMA. She is currently full-time faculty at New York University's ITP program and was previously faculty at Rhode Island School of Design.

Lauren comes to us with a deep knowledge of technology combined with a successful career as a media artist and teacher; a perfect combination for our department. Her artistic practice examines social rules and systems and the way we create identity in today's technological world. She will be teaching courses in the area of networked media while continuing her studio practice and her community-focused work with p5.js, a programming environment for exploring the creation of art and design with technology.

Please join me in welcoming Lauren McCarthy to our DMA community. She will be an incredible asset to the future of the department.

Best regards,

Professor Rebecca Allen
