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.

The Micro-Wetwares project is a convergence of art, biophysics, microfluidics and microbiology where laser optical tweezers and computing combine to create the world's first biocybernetic “video game.” Live non-pathogenic microorganisms and human cells will be manipulated by non-harmful lasers using a computer and joystick and the effects visualized and sonified.
