Assistant Professor Sean Hovendick graduated from Eastern New Mexico University studying broadcast communication, art and computer animation. After ten years of industry experience in video post-production, motion graphics and interactive media, Sean went on to earn his MFA in computer art from Syracuse University. He is a member of the American Institute of Graphic Arts (AIGA), the College Art Association (CAA) and the New Media Caucus (NMC). Professor Hovendick also serves as Coordinator of the Graphic + Media Design program at Sage College of Albany.
In addition to operating his own design studio since 1998, Sean is an exhibiting media artist. His interactive, procedural and time-based artworks explore the hidden forces of power, identity and social order within the mediated psyche. Sean's work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, most recently at the 701 Center for Contemporary Art in Columbia SC, Rutgers University, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, the Delhi International Arts Festival in India, and the JavaMuseum in Cologne, Germany.
