About Pamela Z
As the 2022 Recipient of the Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT, Pamela Z has made multiple visits to the Institute and worked with students, researchers, and other members of the campus community.
This video series features excerpts from an interview conducted on her first visit to MIT, addressing topics such as how she got started making experimental music and the ways in which technology has changed.
About the Eugene McDermott Award in the Arts at MIT
Established in 1974 by Margaret McDermott (1912-2018) in honor of her husband, Eugene McDermott (1899-1973)
The award reflects MIT’s commitment to risk-taking, problem solving, and to the idea of connecting creative minds across disciplines. The award may be given to an artist working in any field or cross-disciplinary activity and is considered an investment in the recipient’s future creative work, rather than a prize for a particular project or lifetime of achievement.
About the Arts at MIT
Rooted in experimentation, risk-taking, and imaginative problem-solving
MIT has a creative culture where experimentation and innovation cross all disciplines and break all boundaries. With over 25 majors, minors and degree programs; hands-on classes; makerspaces; and 100+ concerts and exhibitions open to the public each year, there are more ways than ever for the campus community to express itself through the arts at MIT.
