Since 1990, British artist Simon Grennan and American Christopher Sperandio have collaborated on a variety of interactive, public artworks, often in the form of comic books. Their international collaborations include projects for WIRED magazine, London’s Channel Four, DC Comics, MOMA/PS1, and London’s Institute of Contemporary Art. Awarded the 2010 Witt Artists Residency at the School of Art & Design, they are spending the fall semester engaging the UM community in their gaming project, Conflict Theory, creating simulated battles across a scale model of Ann Arbor.
