Lynn Lukkas (Department of Art, College of Liberal Arts)
Professor Lukkas utilized the term of her fellowship to explore in greater depth the intellectual relationship between her current creative work and recent research in the neurosciences, biomedical engineering, bioethics, world economics, and geo-political relations by focusing on an interactive project that utilizes the viewer’s breathing, heartbeat, brainwaves and other bodily responses as part of a creative installation.
Her work resulted in “Temporal Properties of the World,” a Media and Music Installation at the Zagreb Media Arts Festival. Zagreb, Croatia, October, 2010; “Touch Me / Don’t Touch Me (2 person exhibition)” at the UNO Gallery University of Nebraska, Omaha. January 15 – February 19, 2010; Cinema of the Everyday” at the Ping Yao International Photography Festival, PingYao, Shanxi Province, PRC, 2009; and “Telling Time – Screenings and presentations” at the 15th International Symposium on Electronic Art, University of Ulster, Northern Ireland, 23 August – 1 September, 2009, at the University Film and Video Association Conference, University of New Orleans, August 6, 2009, and at the SSHA Conference, Miami, FL, August 29, 2008.
The results of Prof. Lukkas’ research led to an IAS University Symposium Award for her project “Telling Time.”
