Breadcrumb Journeys are odysseys of health and wellbeing. One takes the guest on a pleasant stroll to find balance in their eating habits, while the other offers a steep climb into the experience of trauma response. The exhibition features the work of two graduating Digital Media & Design students, each with her own distinct take on how life experiences can be expressed through interactive media.
- Lexy Vecchio (Tolland, CT, USA), Here There Be Bears, Game & 3D Design
- Yingzhuo Liu (Nanyang, China), SnackPal, UI/UX design
Featuring a small cohort of only two graduating Digital Media & Design Master of Fine Arts students, Breadcrumb Journeys invites viewers to find balance through experiential design. The work of Yingzhuo Liu travels a path of healing in her UI/UX design surrounding snacks for those with Diabetes, while our other exhibiting artist, Lexy Vecchio, travels a darker road exploring traumatic memory through embodied digital gaming.
