Muse Scholar wins campus art prize
Muse Scholar Sandra Talbot (photo, left), Class of '16, won first place in an art competition sponsored by The Olive Tree Review, Hunter's undergraduate literary and arts journal since 1983.
Three of Talbot's works - "Pixellate," "Outlet Needed," and "Open Windows" (photo, lower right) - responded to the journal's theme for the art contest: The Digital Age.
"I think that the digital age has opened up a world of possibilities in art, spanning from familiar aspects, such as collage, to newer applications, such as animation or virtual realities," Talbot said.
For "Open Windows," Talbot scanned batches of drawn and inked components, then put them together in a digital collage. The pieces form a tower of cubes and open windows, resembling an abstracted computer.
Talbot's winning pieces were featured alongside other student works of poetry, prose and drama in the OTR's Fall 2012 issue, available on the publication's website.
