Since the inception of the New Media Lab in 1997, Andrea has been Managing Director of the facility, providing a place for graduate students and faculty from a range of disciplines to experiment – collectively and individually – with innovative digital applications.

Since the early years of setting up and establishing the facility, the New Media Lab has grown into a stimulating intellectual and social environment that has played an important role in the world of emerging technologies at the GC. Innovative 3-D, GIS, Flash programming, online databases and interactive applications, combined with recent scholarship in the sciences and humanities has marked several New Media Lab faculty and student projects as we attempt to bridge the gap between the database/archive and the spatial/exploratory projects which have characterized many past projects. Andrea is committed to promoting and working on digital projects alongside GC students and faculty, and in her role as Associate Director of the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning (ASHP/CML) under whose auspices the NML functions.

Since 1990, Andrea Ades Vásquez has been at ASHP/CML as an artist, designer, and producer of multimedia materials and websites. Andrea is an Executive Producer and Artistic Director of The Lost Museum, the 3-D exploration of P. T. Barnum’s American Museum. Her other work has included writing and audiovisual production for the WBA? CD-ROMs; co-writer and producer of Up South; co-director and artist for Heaven Will Protect the Working Girl and Savage Acts; and artist and designer of History Matters and other ASHP/CML websites.
