Terry Nauheim is an audiovisual artist, associate professor, and chair of NYIT’s Department of Digital Art and Design. As an artist, she explores sound and visual relationships through digital media, drawing, and installation. She has exhibited her artwork at the Bronx Museum of the Arts; Carousel du Louvre in Paris; the Drawing Room in London; Musée Art Contemporain in Lyon; the Sculpture Center in Long Island City; and the acclaimed "New York, New Sounds" festival. Her work was recently featured in “Transmission Arts: Artists and Airwaves,” PAJ Publications, a genealogy of 150 artists whose works have explored the transmission arts genre from 1921 to the present.

In addition to producing her work, Nauheim teaches digital arts and aesthetics. As department chair, she shares her passion for art, technology, and education. Recent projects include establishing the HIVE (Home of Innovation, Visualization, and Exploration), which features motion capture, 3-D printing, and other visualization technologies; establishing an internship program for digital art and design students; organizing academic opportunities in partnership with the creative industry and nonprofit world including CITYArts, Inc., Creative Tech Week, The Lumen Art Prize, and NYC ACM SIGGRAPH; creating a pre-college summer program for high school students pursuing studies in animation and graphic design; and establishing interdisciplinary courses such as the Viscardi Industry course for Fine Arts, Computer Science, and Management students. She is currently working with the department to build a curriculum that will take its art and design program into the future.
