DXARTS Ph.D. candidate Chanee Choi was awarded Judson-Morrissey Excellence in New Media Award 2021 in The New Media Caucus, The College Art Association (CAA) with her project Polaris (2019).

"Chanee Choi presents video documentation from her installation “Polaris” (2019), that includes paper puppets and an immersive projection that maps across the four walls of the gallery and onto the viewers themselves. Choi creates colorful images on-screen with interactive games and at times, costumed performers moving through a space full of onlookers. Viewers are invited to engage directly with Choi’s work, to handle it as one would with traditional handicrafts. They become part of the direction that a piece takes as they are given agency to move and to take in the aesthetic and unique hand of the craftsperson."
