The Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) is an academic concentration within the Multimedia and Performing Arts Department at the Massachusetts College of Art . It was founded by Harris Barron in 1969 .
"The artists in The Studio for Interrelated Media (SIM) combine the study of many media by pursuing the representation of their ideas with the most appropriate media for each idea. This process often results in the extending, reshaping, and breaking of boundaries. SIM is project- and concept-centered and depends on the exchange of experience, knowledge and curiosities of a diverse community of students and faculty."
