REVISIT SCIENTIFIC DELIRIUM MADNESS OF PAST YEARS

This program is generously supported by Sonia Landy Sheridan in the name of the late digital art pioneer Steve Wilson. In 2018 Sheridan named Sarah Rosalena Brady as the Leonardo Steve Wilson Fellow for SDM. Sheridan states: “In contemporary terms, I say that Sarah represents all of STEAMS in a profoundly weaving, integrated way. Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics and Society. That makes her not just a contemporary artist, but an artist of the future.” Read about Sarah’s and other residents experience during their time with Scientific Delirium Madness here.
