Integrative Arts Student Fellowship

In the spring of 2012, six student Integrative Arts Fellows worked with CNDLS in conjunction with Where the Seafloor Melts. Artist-in-Residence Joan Lederman led a multimedia workshop for the students, who then developed works of art inspired by her art and her methods. The students were expected to respond to creative prompts called "Daily Melts," and to document and reflect on their growth and process using social media tools. These students brought a wide range of skills and interests in various artistic fields, including photography, drawing, painting, printmaking, design, collage, acting, directing, and movement.

More insight into these collaborations can be viewed on their shared blog, "Ocean Mud, Ceramic Change & the Connected Mind."

CNDLS Integrative Arts Fellows

Taylor Bothwell

Taylor Bothwell (C'13) is pursuing a major in Psychology and a minor in Studio Art with the hopes of attending graduate school for a doctorate in Clinical Psychology.

Upon her arrival at Georgetown, Taylor decided to test the waters of creativity in the forms of drawing, painting, and design and found herself in love. With no pre-undergraduate training, she found her way into the arts at Georgetown and is not turning back. For her, art is therapy, a relief from academic stress.

She is very excited to have been included in this project and to work with CNDLS, Joan, and her very talented fellow fellows.

Julia Kwon

Julia Kwon (C'12) studied Studio Art with a concentration in Painting at Georgetown University. Her paintings are inspired by the act of mark-making; she invents new spaces by creating depth with expressive brushstrokes. Through painting, she creates her own story with new meaning and space that not only intrigues her visually, but also moves her internally. Julia's artworks were exhibited in multiple group exhibitions at Georgetown and Lehigh University and she recently received an award for AAUW's poster competition, Celebrating Women's Voice in Politics and Art.

Helena Adelita Landegger

Lena Adelita (C'12) is a mixed media artist from Larchmont, New York. As an undergrad in the College she pursued a double degree in French and Studio Art, with a concentration in Drawing and Printmaking.

Lena is fascinated by the peace and sanctity of a moment in time wherein a visceral experience is quietly paused. Her designs often function as coded messages that are intended to provoke the viewer in a whimsical or nostalgic way. Since graduating from Georgetown she has continued to follow her dreams into the realms of Digital Arts, Printmaking and Graphic Design.

Swedian Lie

Originally from Indonesia, Swedian Lie (C'13) is a senior in the College, double majoring in Studio Art (Painting) and Theater & Performance Studies, with a minor in Government. You will most likely find him either 1) screaming at one of a variety of possible Adobe product failures, 2) strung on some convoluted mess of rope from the grid of a black box theater, or—sometimes, if you're real lucky—3) both. He has been heavily involved with many of the student theater groups on campus, as well as the Theater Department, as a director, writer, designer, and the occasional performer. He has been doing freelance graphic design for more than two years now, and is hopeful that he can continue this interest in the professional world, with the income going to late-night theater and art-making.

Chase Meacham

Chase Meacham (C'13) is majoring in government and theatre. He does not know what he will do with those things, but is wildly-optimistic about the job opportunities they offer.


He has gotten heavily involved in theatre at Georgetown. He has acted and/or worked-on over a dozen shows to-date, most recently Macbeth (Associate Producer), Visible Impact (ensemble), and Arsenic and Old Lace (Mr. Witherspoon).

He writes things sometimes, too.

Andrew Stoffel

Andrew Stoffel (SFS'12) majored in Culture & Politics in Georgetown's School of Foreign Service. His academic pursuits center around the intersection of theatre and conflict and identifying ways to use theatre to explore, explain, and heal conflicts in our world today.

He has been involved in many theatrical processes of New Work Development on Georgetown's campus and has just recently begun to explore the medium of film. He hopes to further his theatrical explorations post-Georgetown and continue to explore how community-based theatre and peace education efforts can work in tandem to find new paradigms of conflict resolution on local and global scales.
