In Our Lab, On Our Walls

We have a collection of photographs on the walls of our lab. The slide show below shows some of them.

The goal of the display is to illustrate that anybody can create interesting, fun, and artistic images using readily available equipment and, perhaps, software. Details about this display are here.

The photos on display represent what can be accomplished here in the Interactive Media Center. We have digital photos that were taken with cameras nearly identical to the ones that can be checked out here. Others were scanned from 35mm slides on the specialized slide scanner in our lab. The new ones were manipulated, to a lesser or greater degree, in Photoshop, also available here in the IMC.

Our IMC hardware includes both PC and Mac computers, MIDI devices, scanners, color and black and white printers, and audio/video digitizing equipment.

The Interactive Media Center has camcorders, microphones, tripods, cameras, digital voice recorders, and other equipment available. A complete list may be viewed on our Equipment for Loan page. We strongly suggest that you contact us at or at 442-3608 for more information and reservations.

The IMC offers many instructional opportunities, including a large number of free classes.
