She has received numerous grants and awards, including three Fulbright Senior Specialist Grants and been an
artist/scholar-in-residence at such institutions as MIT, the Taipei Artist Village and NTU Centre for Contemporary Art Singapore. (This summer: at the Cité des Internationale Arts, Paris.) Her own works, which push the definition of painting into the realm of space and sound, have been shown widely, including at Montreal’s International Digital Art Biennial (BIAN), APO-33 (Nantes), Beijing’s Central Conservatory, Shangha’s Zendai MoMA, Trondheim’s Academy of Fine Arts at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, Kunsthalle Mainz (Germany) and NYU’s Loewe Theater (sound/kinetic performance). In 2016 (re-released in 2018) MIT Press/Leonardo Electronic Almanac published a catalog of her work with painting and sound, What if You Could Hear a Painting. Additionally she has given talks on her art at such institutions as MIT (Catalyst Conversations), Université du Québec à Montréal, Goldsmith University and New York University.

Florian Grond

His research and design interests are multimodal participatory design in the context of disability, the arts, and assistive technology. He has also several years of experience in 3D sound recording (microphone arrays) and reproduction. Since more then 15 years he has been active as an independent media artist, exhibiting his works in places like the Tokyo Design Museum, the Center for Art and Media (ZKM) in Germany, the International Digital Art Biennial (BIAN) in Montreal, the BARD College in NY and NTNU in Trondheim
(together with Mary Sherman). When connecting art design and disability he draws from his creative practice as an artist, applying since many years what is today known as research creation. Over the last years, he started various collaborations with colleagues with disabilities from academia and the arts resulting in the development of novel ethnographic methods, artistic creations and the curating of exhibitions.
