Another 100 Colorado Creatives: Chris Coleman

Editor's note: As our first 100 Colorado Creatives series came to a close on the eve of Westword's Artopia last month, it became painfully obvious that our work was far from finished. We feel lucky to live and work in a place where the number of creative people is ever-growing, raising the bar of the arts every single day, year after year. And so we're picking up right where we left off to present Another 100 Colorado Creatives.

#100: Chris Coleman

University of Denver professor Chris Coleman not only teaches the ropes of the digital arts -- motion-based and otherwise -- he's also making those ropes. In the art world, this is the frontier, and Coleman traverses it in a covered wagon of technology, gaining worldwide notice for his installations, inventions and video work. At the start of what's turning out to be busy spring for Coleman, we invited him to kick off the new 100CC series with insights into his brave new world.

KEEP WESTWORD FREE... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we'd like to keep it that way. With local media under siege, it's more important than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" program, allowing us to keep offering readers access to our incisive coverage of local news, food and culture with no paywalls.
Susan Froyd started writing for Westword as the "Thrills" editor in 1992 and never quite left the fold. These days she still freelances for the paper in addition to walking her dogs, enjoying cheap ethnic food and reading voraciously. Sometimes she writes poetry.
