The Crisp-Ellert Art Museum welcomes new media artists Matt Roberts and Dengke Chen, and poet Terri Witek back to Flagler College for their multi-disciplinary performance, implement for removing foreign bodies. This is a Passport Co-Curricular event!

Created with sound engineer Amandine Pras, the four collaborators have created a twenty-minute mix of live video, text, animation and sound that asks us to consider what is "live" and to reimagine our most familiar selves.

Matt Roberts is a new media artist specializing in locative media, physical computing, augmented reality, and real-time video performance. His work has been featured internationally, including exhibitions in Taiwan, Brazil, Canada, Argentina, Italy, Mexico and nationally in New York, San Francisco, Miami, and Chicago. In 2015, his collaboration Dream Garden, with poet Terri Witek, was performed at Orlando’s Art in Odd Places, and has since been featured through the US and abroad, in Santa Fe, New Mexico; Manizales, Colombia; Porto and Lisbon, Portugal; and Austin Peay State University, Clarksville, Tennessee. In May 2016, Roberts was nominated for the Florida Prize in Contemporary Art by the Orlando Museum of Art, where his work was also on view. Roberts received his MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago, and is currently an Associate Professor of Digital Art at Stetson University, in DeLand, Florida.

Dengke Chen’s creative art works involve 2D and 3D animation, illustration and augmented reality interaction. His work has been presented in festivals and exhibitions throughout the United States, Europe, and in China. Chen received his BA in animation from China Central Academy of Fine Arts, and his MFA in New Media from Pennsylvania State University. He is currently an Assistant Professor in the Department of Creative Arts at Stetson University.

Terri Witek is the author of five books of poems, most recently Body Switch. Her poetry often traces the breakages between words and images, and has been included in American Poetry Review, Poetry, Slate, Hudson Review, and many other journals and anthologies. She has collaborated with Brazilian visual artist Cyriaco Lopes since 2005; their works together include museum and gallery shows, performance and site-specific projects featured internationally in New York, Seoul, Miami, Lisbon, and Rio de Janeiro. Collaborations with digital artist Matt Roberts use augmented reality technology for smart phones to poetically map cities and have been featured in Manizales (Colombia), Glasgow, Vancouver, Lisbon, Miami, Santa Fe and Orlando. Witek is the Sullivan Chair in Creative Writing at Stetson University, where she directs their undergraduate creative writing program, and with Lopes teaches Poetry in the Expanded Field in Stetson University’s low-residency MFA of the Americas.
