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 Heliotropic Poetry Lab

The Heliotropic Poetry Lab consists of five solar-powered autonomous roving vehicles designed to collect and process weather data to automatically write site-specific poetry upon the land. Unmanned Minerals will deploy these rovers in multiple desert sites to echo the absurd nexus of militarism, exploration, environmentalism and art in the American West.

Unmanned Minerals is a collaboration of Gabrielle Strong, Jared Stanley and Matthew Hebert.
