Festival Fellow

Utrecht University & SPRING Academy invited a Festival Fellow to SPRING.

A Festival Fellow is a (international) scholar that is invited to reflect on performances, topics and research related to SPRING and SPRING Academy.

This year’s Festival Fellow, Chris Salter, is special because he also produces work as artist and presents his installation SNN #2: Light/Space/Prop at the Festival.

Next to this, he joins the Open round table AI & the Arts and will contribute to several school programmes.


Chris Salter is an artist, Professor of Computation Arts at Concordia University, Montreal, and Director of the Hexagram network for Research-Creation in Arts, Cultures and Technologies. He creates large-scale installations and writes about the intersection of art, design, and technology. Salter collaborates with a diverse group of professionals, including anthropologists and engineers, to create immersive works that engage multiple senses. His work has been exhibited globally and covered by various publications, including The Guardian and The New York Times. He is the author of two books and has given over 100 talks at conferences and festivals worldwide.
