Whether a video game's for fun or medical rehab, whether a film is The Hangover or Shoah, such projects require artists. If they're Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts students working toward Bachelor of Fine Arts degrees in Intermedia at ASU's School of Art, they apply technique to road-less-traveled media such as time and data to produce visual, sound, installation, and performance work ranging from whimsical to socially fraught.
Spring 2014's six candidates show off in "Anything Goes," an exhibition opening Monday, February 24, from noon to 5 p.m. and continuing through Friday, February 28, with an opening reception at 6 p.m. Tuesday, February 25. The group's earlier projects include everything from documentaries to cool manga-style characters, plus impressive extracurricular achievements.

Phoenix Suns vs. Minnesota Timberwolves at US Airways Center
The Minnesota Timberwolves are wasting the prime years of Kevin Love's career. Love is, arguably, the best power forward in the NBA, and yet the Timberwolves have failed to make the playoffs in his first six seasons. This is why you're hearing trade rumors linking Love to the Phoenix Suns (along with half a dozen other teams). Love's superior rebounding and reliable offensive game make him a solid fit for the Suns' system, which is why those rumors may just be credible.
You can see Love and the Timberwolves on Tuesday, February 25, when they take on the Suns at US Airways Center, 201 East Jefferson Street. The game figures to be high-scoring; Phoenix and Minnesota are both in the top five in points scored per game and neither is known for playing great defense.
The game will tip off at 7 p.m. Tickets start at $18 and are available by calling 602-379-7867 or online through www.ticketmaster.com. -- Ed Kummerer
