Artist Projects

On Our Radar

Welcome to On Our Radar, a searchable database featuring nearly 300 Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts projects that advanced to the second or third round in last year's highly competitive award selection process.

Although these projects were not ultimately funded by Creative Capital, we feel they are artists to watch, and we invite you to explore them. This site will be online until September 30, 2016.

BodyCartography Project
Minneapolis, MN

the felt room

the felt room is a performance installation for a dark room. A dance work designed to be more felt than seen. We seek to create an autonomous zone of experience that is not reducible to logic, reason or morality. It will engage performers and audiences in a practice of intentional aliveness together. It will be developed with support of the Headlands Center for the Arts and premier at the Perlman Museum at Carlton College.

BodyCartography Project is a collaboration of Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad.

CoPresence

CoPresence explores themes of separation and connection in our digitally-enhanced world, using custom-designed technology. Part One poetically explores aloneness, togetherness, longing and shared visions, as two solo dances are fused via live-feed video into a duet on an onstage screen. Part Two provides an immersive experience for the public.

We Are Discovered (working title)

A webpage is a webpage. In We Are Discovered, Renee Carmichael wonders why, despite the vast possibilities of the internet, does everything seem to be similar? Taking the movement of publishing/art into the digital, alongside a series of experiments with technology, Carmichael will create a platform that turns the internet on its head.
