IMA alum Grayson Earle collaborated with The New Inquiry to develop a free, easy-to-use application called Bail Bloc, which mines for a cryptocurrency to help disadvantaged people in New York pay for their bail bills. The project was born as a response to the prison-industrial complex, which imprisons thousands of low-income people before they are even trialed, making them lose jobs or custody of children and subjecting them to plea bargains.
The Integrated Media Arts at Hunter College (IMA MFA) is now accepting applications for the Fall 2014 class. The admissions deadline is coming this March 1st, 2014.
