Stanford Arts Review discusses echo::eystem — Treadmill Dreamtime, Running in Place. In part of performance, her performers raise themselves above the belt, making it appear as though they’re running on air; they set the treadmills on low, walk to the front of the treadmill, stand, fall, and repeat; they stand on the arms of the treadmill, balancing and singing—all the same things I did as a child, but with a purpose.
echo::system featured in the SF Chronicle: 'We expect science fiction to take us to other planets. But in echo::system — Treadmill Dreamtime, Running in Place, Grisha Coleman invites us into an imaginary otherworld here on Earth.'

Grisha Coleman and her collaborative team of performers, architect, electro-acoustic sound, video, 3d animation, lighting, and human-computer interface designers recently completed a residency at MANCC developing Treadmill Dreamtime, running in place, the second installment of echo::system -- a framework for arts-driven research and public engagement constructed to mediate connections to our environment through the practices of art and science.
