Chris Harrison. Chris is a Ph.D. student in the Human-Computer
Interaction Institute at Carnegie Mellon University. His research
interests primarily focus on novel interaction technologies and input
methods – especially those that leverage sensing and the environment in
unconventional and expressive ways. In his free time, Chris gets excited
about large data sets and how, through computation, they can be given
form. Often, this is through the use of simple visual primitives that
self assemble into rich information tapestries.

Susanne Slavick. Susanne is the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Art at
Carnegie Mellon. Graduating from Yale University in 1978, she
subsequently studied at Jagiellonian University in Krakow and earned her
MFA at Tyler School of Art in Rome and Philadelphia. Susanne has
exhibited in museums and galleries around the world, her paintings have
also been recognized through an artist fellowship from the National
Endowment for the Arts and four awards from the Pennsylvania Council on
the Arts. Susanne was honored as 2008 “Artist of the Year” by the
Pittsburgh Center for the Arts where she premiered “R&R(&R),” an ongoing
series of works on paper that convert our military expression for “rest
and recuperation” to images of “revelation, regret, and restoration.”
These and new works will be featured in a January, 2010 solo exhibition
at the Chicago Cultural Center.
