iACADEMY, one of the leading schools in Computing and Design will hold its student work exhibition entitled, "SHIFT" on March 7 until March 8 in Rockwell Powerplant Mall. The SHIFT will showcase works from the students of Computing, Fashion, Multimedia and of course Animation. 


“This exhibit shifts perspective on technology and art as we bring them together in a whole new different level with the collection that we will display,” says Ryan Abeledo, Chairperson of Multimedia and curator of the exhibit. 


SHIFT represents a turning point in iACADEMY's position as an important cultivator of cutting-edge art practices. Showcasing examples of student works in digital painting, vector illustration, 3D rendering, fashion design, web design, game development, and software engineering, this exhibition points a spotlight on fresh approaches to artistic expression supplemented by digital technologies. The collection seeks to impart an awareness and appreciation of new media as the way of the future and its vital integration in creative industries that sustain the country's economic growth.

“In iACADEMY we expose our students to real work environment to train them better for the future. This kind of activity motivates them and really places them in an environment where they can learn firsthand what they need to enter their respective fields not only as competent people, but as relevant leaders – the kind of people that we call “Game Changers.” After all, artists today are not merely people who create designs and drawings, but artists are today’s design thinkers and creative communicators,” says Vanessa Tanco, President and CEO of iACADEMY. 


“In this age of entertainment with unprecedented access to information and communication, media consumption is at an all time high. Education needs to be reinvented to be as agile and innovative as the rapidly changing technologies that support the requirements of the industry. iACADEMY envisions a new generation of creative leaders that are brave and eager to adapt to the changing needs of our information society, able to pursue new ideas that can shift our perspective of the world we live in,” concludes Abeledo.
