Toadstools and Dragonflies was supported by a grant from the Frank-Ratchye Fund for Art @ the Frontier (FRFAF)— an endowment founded to encourage the creation of innovative artworks by the faculty, students and staff of Carnegie Mellon University. With this fund, the STUDIO seeks to develop a cache of groundbreaking projects created at CMU — works that can be described as “thinking at the edges” of the intersection of disciplines.

Suzie Silver is Associate Professor in Electronic and Time Based Art at Carnegie Mellon University. Hilary Harp is Assistant Professor of Sculpture at Arizona State University.
