• Artists don’t typically start with a hypothesis, or structure their practice to prove that hypothesis. But I think that artistic practice can itself be a form of research and knowledge production. In art, the outcomes may be more open-ended, but they’re driven by a similar process of inquiry and desire for discovery.

The Wonderland Awards this spring included live Lewis Carroll-inspired video projections on the facade of Doheny Library.


On April 17th, 2014, the University of Southern California Libraries hosted a celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the Wonderland Awards with a multimedia feast for the eyes, Wonderland Unbound. The evening featured a live projection of Wonderland inspired videos, created by 7 Star Sun and USC School of Cinematic Arts students, on the facade of Doheny Memorial Library. Guests were also given the opportunity to interact with costumed characters from Carroll’s work and interactive books/images.

The Wonderland Awards, established by the USC Libraries with generous support from Linda and George Cassady, calls for California students to submit creative work (poetry, prose, visual art, film, etc.) inspired by the works of Lewis Carroll and the holdings of the Cassady Collection.
