Congratulations to our inaugural winners!

Rebecca Bivens (PhD student in Art History) and S. Elise Archias (Assistant Professor of Art History) for their collaboration entitled “Beyond the Autonomy/Relationality Binary,” which draws from art history, English, women's and gender studies, race and ethnicity studies, and critical theory, and will lead to a seminar at the Modernist Studies Association Conference, a symposium at Gallery 400, and (fingers crossed) an anthology centered on the “autonomy/relationality binary.” Ms. Bivens is mentored by Blake Stimson (Art History).

David Mulder (MArch student) and Matthew Wizinsky (Assistant Professor, School of Design, Graphic Design) for a project entitled “Pop Swipe Cinema: Proposal for Mobile Interactive Touch-Screen Cinema.” Their collaboration blends media, product design, architecture, and urbanism to create a prototype of a low-cost, large-scale fabric touchscreen" that can turn into a public pop-up interactive media space. Mr. Mulder is mentored by Stephanie Niebuhr (Architecture).

Courtney Prokopas (MFA student in Moving Image) and Lori Felker (Visiting Assistant Professor of Art) for “Venus from Flames: Prescribed Burns and their Role in Preserving Venus Flytraps.” This documentary film approaches ecology, public policy, conservation, botany, biological engineering, psychology, and sociology through the lens of filmmaking; more specifically, the duo focuses on a 60-square-mile patch of pocosin between stretching across the Carolinas, which is the only place on Earth where the Venus flytrap exists in nature. Ms. Prokopas is mentored by Ms. Felker.
