Commissioned Works

Connecticut College’s Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology commissioned three original works to debut during “Intersections,” the Center’s 16th Biennial Symposium on Arts and Technology, Feb. 15 to 17, 2018. The artists were selected for their unique abilities to incorporate the symposium theme, “Intersections,” while combining at least one area of creative expression with a major technology component, including subject matter, medium, tool or environment. The selected teams are granted a week-long funded residency which includes presentations, classes, student involvement, campus interaction and performance or presentation of the completed work at the symposium.

2018 Commissioned Artists

"Nuclear Winter"

Megan Young, Gregory King and Angela Davis Fegan

Together with hand-made brick structures and paper objects, the system will create a microcosm representing our current political climate.

Speculative Tourism

The Speculative Tourism group will work with local writers from various disciplines and backgrounds to develop and present at the symposium a collection of interactive guided audio walking tours through their own speculative future visions of New London, Connecticut. 

Why Should Our Bodies End at the Skin?

Aurie Hsu, Steven Kemper
Live Performance for sensor-equipped belly dancer, robotic percussion, and live sound processing, exploring questions of fluidity between organism and machine.
