OLIVIA ROBINSON is a multimedia fiber artist whose work spans performance, installation, research, and community engagement. Her diverse body of work ranges in scale from hand-built textile circuits to architectural-scale inflatable structure, and investigates issues of justice, identity, community, and transformation. Robinson has received awards from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Franklin Furnace Fund, and the New York Foundation for the Arts; her work has been exhibited at SIGGRAPH, Boston CyberArts Festival, and the American Land Museum. She is co-founder of the performance troupe Little Big Bang and is a board member for the Deep Listening Institute. Robinson received her BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art, her MFA in Electronic Art from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and teaches at the Maryland Institute College of Art.

Soft Circuits: Creating Circuitry and Sensors with Textiles is a workshop led by Olivia Robinson with Karyn Lao and Kate O’Brien. Soft Circuits explores soft circuitry, handmade sensors, conductive fabrics, and creating with electronic textiles. Participants will create their own soft sensors, which will become part of an interactive electronic quilt on display following the workshop in the College of Fine Arts Great Hall as part of the wats:ON Festival.
