A composer and choreographer in performance and experiential media, Grisha Coleman explores relationships among our physiological, technological, and ecological systems. She is an associate professor of movement, computation, and digital media at the School of Arts, Media, and Engineering and the School of Dance at Arizona State University. Her current work echo::system is a springboard for reimagining the environment, environmental change, and environmental justice. Part of this multiplatform work has been presented at the International Society of Electronic Arts in Dubai, ArtXScience in TKcity, the Pasadena City of Art and Science Festival, and the 2011 New Media Art Triennial at the National Art Museum in Beijing. The work has been collaboratively developed with an interdisciplinary team of artists, researchers, scientists, architects, animators, and performers. Coleman’s work has been presented and supported nationally and internationally by numerous grants and awards, including a National Endowment for the Arts “Arts in Media” Award (2012); a Surdna Foundation “Thriving Cultures” Award (2014); the Mohr Visiting Artist at Stanford University (2014); artist fellowships at the MacDowell Colony (2015) and at Rockefeller Center in Bellagio, Italy (2015); and a commission from the Maggie Allesee National Center for Choreography.
