Congrats to Prof. Julia Christensen, assistant professor of Integrated Media, on her Creative Capital Arts Grant!
Julia’s projects investigate how the local and global community are affected by our modern, urban, technology-packed world, and the life of the products our society produces.
You could say Christensen, an assistant professor of integrated media in the studio art department, finds inspiration in “stuff” — the stuff of industry, the stuff of consumerism, the stuff of economic crisis. Now, Christensen is turning her focus to the stuff of electronic waste. That thinking has landed her a prestigious Creative Capital grant worth $90,000 for a new endeavor to build DIY video projectors out of discarded electronic waste scavenged around the world.
