Dimensions of Digitization 

ISOVIST Gallery at CCAM

















April 4 – July 30, 2024
This exhibition launches the ISOVIST gallery at the Center for Collaborative Arts and Media (CCAM) at Yale.

In geometry, the isovist is the total space you can see from any point where you are standing. The choice of where to stand, and where to look, is part of your process as a body in space. 

Process is also inherent to the prints, weaves, and permutations to explore in Dimensions of Digitalization

Like much of the work produced and presented at CCAM, these processes often involve collaborations across time, media, and cultures: 

Iskra Velitchkova’s experience of reading Stanisław Lem’s novel Solaris. Dmitri Cherniak’s generative afterimages of pioneering predecessor László Moholy-Nagy. The threads, digital and physical, woven between Anna Lucia and the quilters of Gee’s Bend. Marcel Schwittlick’s drawings with light, based on years and years of gestural recordings. 

The algorithmic undergirding of much of the work in the gallery is itself an inherent part of the process, generating unique artworks that are part of a larger whole. 

Process is something we might not see, but that we can sense with our full bodies in space, in relationship to the work.

We invite you to do both from your personal isovist in the gallery.

About the ISOVIST Gallery






Established by the Center for Collaborative Arts and Media (CCAM) in 2024, the ISOVIST gallery is Yale’s interdisciplinary art gallery. In addition to showing work, ISOVIST illuminates, studies, and exhibits work that embraces technology in unique ways. The gallery is inspired by the concept of the isovist as a way to represent the volume of space visible from a given vantage point. It is designed to establish an isovist between the viewer and a minimum of three artworks.


The ISOVIST gallery is open by appointment to the general public Thursday to Saturday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM (email ccam@yale.edu), and to Yale community members Monday to Friday from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
