I am shamelessly promoting my husband’s wonderful, new app for toddlers (now available for the iphone, ipad or android!). It “stars” our son, Iggy, and is an ABC early education, bilingual tool with special appearances by a mandrill, quetzal, wookie and others.

I will be participating in this 3-day symposium in Durham, Canada, this weekend at Durham Art Gallery, co-sponsored by OCAD University.

Here is the write-up:
COMMON PULSE will present a forum for presentations and discussion during a three-day symposium. Twelve artists and curators have been invited to present their experience creating work in the context of university research. These presentations will spark a dialogue among all of the participants. Together we will be able to examine current developments in digital media production and consumption within contemporary art practice and how they predict, reflect or refute parallel media phenomena within North American culture in general.

I was interviewed yesterday on CT NPR’s “Where We Live.” I have never done live radio before so was not sure what to expect but had a great time. The topic was “design thinking” and “data visualization.” I am introduced at 39:00 in the segment.

April 15, 2011 – June 25, 2011

Organized by Nicole Caruth, Independent Curator and Critic

With Food in Mind looks at artists’ use of food as subject matter or medium in book arts, print, and digital media.
