Exploring Media Associate Professor Tim Waldrop has worked with nontraditional materials for an annual series called "Exploring Media." He began the "Exploring Media" exhibit series as a way for students to become more experimental with materials. The annual series began by simply contacting specific corporations and manufacturers who could possibly donate nontraditional materials. This program is in its Seventh Year. Every year, a different material is "explored". Materials used in the past were expanding polyurethane foam, tape, cardboard, glitter, bees wax and maps. This past year's material was recycled materials.
