Upcoming Keynote:

TEI' 24: On The Edge

February 11-14, 2024

Cork, Ireland

The ACM International Conference on Tangible, Embedded and Embodied Interaction.

The conference theme will be “On the Edge”: The theme echoes the location of the city and country that will host TEI’24. Ireland and the City of Cork are on the edge of Europe, which sometimes results in a sense of disconnection but also of opportunity and openness. We want to look at the positive and thought-provoking aspect of this by celebrating cutting-edge scientific research and art that is on the edge of disciplines and on the edge of new unique developments and possibilities.

Artist Residency:

National Artist-in-Residence at Contemporary Craft


Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Aug 16-Sept 10, 2023

In conjunction with the Climate Awakening exhibition at Contemporary Craft, Adrien was invited to come to Pittsburgh for three weeks leading up to the show to make a new series of collaborative work with two local craft artists - Julian Maturino, a glass blower, and Daniel Brockett, a willow weaver who grows his own willow at Foggy Blossom Farm. The artwork is inspired by the Allegheny River and is being created as a response to Pittsburgh's historical significance as the geographic epicenter of Industrialization in America.
