CPAR Senior Chiara (Chia) Amisola wins Sudler Prize

May 24, 2022

Yale CS congratulates 2022 Computing and the Arts (CPAR) graduate Chiara Amisola for receiving the Sudler Prize, which is  ”awarded annually to two graduating Seniors who, in the opinion of the Faculty, have demonstrated excellence or the highest standards of proficiency in performance or execution, and in the field of composition in one of the following general areas: architecture and design, creative writing, dance, film and video, music, theater, painting, sculpture, photography, and digital arts.”

Her award citation is as follows:

“Chiara Amisola, a Computing and the Arts Major on the Visual Art track, graduates cum laude and with distinction. 

An artist who uses technology to question and contemplate the nature of the virtual world, Chia makes work that treats digital space like a tactile medium, shaping it into something at once foreign and familiar, and that requires audiences, particularly young ones, to acknowledge their complex relationships with their online lives.

Using computer applications, games within games, and social worlds mapped onto real geography, Chia exposes the pervasive, powerful forces of the digital world — both positive and negative — and how they have become some of the most important, most deeply felt aspects of our lives. Much of this work has already made an impact around the world through Chia’s non-profit, Developh.”

She’ll be joining Figma as a product designer this fall.

Congratulations, Chia!
