Pioneering Digital Artist Camille Utterback Receives MacArthur Fellowship


Text Rain (1999) by Camille Utterback and Romy Achituv

Known for her "physical-digital systems" that call attention to the body in an increasingly mediated culture, Camille Utterback has been awarded a MacArthur Fellowship. The artist describes Text Rains (1999) as "an interactive installation in which participants use the familiar instrument of their bodies, to do what seems magical—to lift and play with falling letters that do not really exist.".
