AnnieLaurie Erickson, the Ellsworth Woodward Junior Professor in Studio Art, was awarded a residency at YADDO in Saratoga Springs, NY, where she is currently working. Her photographs have been included in a number of exhibitions.

This year Erickson received a $49,000 ATLAS grant from the Louisiana Board of Regents. The Awards to Louisiana Artists and Scholars (ATLAS) program provides support for major scholarly and artistic productions with potential to have a broad impact on a regional and/or national level. This funding allowed Erickson to travel to major data centers in Europe this past fall and to expand on her project, Data Shadows, a photographic investigation into the physical apparatus of the Internet and digital surveillance.
