Colleen Ludwig works with metaphors of skin and boundaries to create immersive environments, video works and performances. Her current research is a four-room suite of interactive installations called Elemental Bodies. She has created the installation Vanishing Point at aceartinc. in Winnipeg with collaborator Jarod Charzewski in 2008 and performed an interactive, electronic costume called ContactContact in San Francisco and Austin in 2007. Most recently, she exhibited the first work in Elemental Bodies, called Shiver, as part of the Watershed: Art, Activism and Community Engagement show at the UW-Milwaukee. Shiver was supported by a Research Growth Initiative Grant and a fellowship from the Center for 21st Century Studies, both at UW-Milwaukee. She received her MFA in Time in Interactivity in 2005 from the University of Minnesota and is currently teaching at University of Wisconsin, Milwaukee.
