The texture of handmade paper, the loops and bowls of a friend’s distinctive handwriting, the appreciation of the time and care taken in sending: These are just a few of the great pleasures of receiving a physical note.

Illustrators continue one of the oldest human traditions: making
story-telling pictures. Both prehistoric images painted on cave walls and medieval illuminated manuscripts show the work of the human hand, but we live in a different world. The invention of printing and advances in
reproduction techniques bring us images that are less handmade, and computer programs can generate images on their own. The fact that a person actually made the pictures we see is less and less obvious.
Paradoxically, pictures have become increasingly powerful and pervasive in our interconnected world. Books, offering a sustained engagement and physical experience electronic media can’t give, are printed more than ever before. In graphic novels and manga, illustration becomes more important than text. We live in a visual age where pictures constantly bridge cultural borders.
“STEAMED” features innovative artworks by the Department of Art + Architecture Faculty that explore realms of the S.T.E.M. (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) disciplines and reveals the ways in which artists experiment, investigate and solve problems much like scientists.
