Fiona Barnett is a Ph.D. candidate in the Literature Program and Women's Studies at Duke University. She is currently at work on her dissertation, entitled Turning the Body Inside Out, which is a genealogy of the fantasy that the body requires investigation, and traces the attachment to the kind of knowledges that can be produced by examining the body (both inside and out).
I am interested in developing the dramatic and narrative capabilities of interactive 3D virtual reality installations as a medium for addressing social and cultural issues. I show my work internationally at conferences such as Siggraph and ISEA, and in venues such as the Fondazione Querini Stampalia in Venice, the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography and the International Center for Photography in New York. My work has been supported by awards such as the IBM Innovation Award, WIRED Magazine computer art award, a Japan Foundation Fellowship, Hauptstadtkulturfonds of Germany, MIT CAVS fellowship and the IAMAS media art academy in Japan.
i am a video, photography, and installation artist.
my interdisciplinary activities have included professional work as a documentary photographer, dp, visual + verbal editor, critical + creative writer, journalist, and instructor.

Art that ingests / An erotics of the incorporation of the Other / Gain at the expense of contamination / Art that exists in the bodies of the audience / Abrupt dissolution of boundaries
Caitlin Berrigan’s practice is conceptual, carried by material things: tactile and edible sculpture, immersive installation, electronic media and participatory performance. She is interested in alluring objects and situations that must be activated by participants, initiating an experience in their bodies that connects physiology and intellect. The artwork itself becomes embodied, producing sensate forms of knowledge.
