Patricia Melton of the Department of Art’s Digital/Experimental Media program recently presented her work at the Kansas Undergraduate Research Day at the capital in Topeka on February 15th. Patricia project “The Cicada: Interactive Art Promoting Healthier Human-Insect Relationships” is an exploration of alternative modes of interaction with living organisms. The interactive Cicada invites the participant to interact by applying pressure and responding by triggering sound, images and video. Only 5 K-State students were selected by the Office of Undergraduate Research & Creative Inquiry for this prestigious event. Congratulations, Patricia!
