• I just wanted to congratulate you on a fantastic conference this weekend. I learned a ton and met some incredible people that I hope to stay in touch with. There were times where I felt like I found my "tribe"–people who didn't even blink when I listed computer science, music and developmental psychology as my fields of study.

On Collaboration

  • September 3, 2014

Arts-integrated interdisciplinarity includes individuals with hybrid skill sets working solo, as well as collaborative teams comprised of individuals with specific skill sets.


Golan Levin is an Associate Professor of Art and Director of the Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University. When asked about the nature of collaboration between art and other disciplines he acknowledges that there are two schools of thinking when it comes to collaboration: do it yourself or do it with others. As a visual artist who writes his own code, Levin has experience in both camps, but often finds himself working with other hybrids like himself.
