  "Katherine Watson walks the walk — she brings artists and scientists into productive conversations pushing the boundaries of what can spontaneously materialize out of the creative vacuum. She can produce exceptional events that fire the imagination and along the way she can excite administrators by the vision of what might be possible when the barriers to communication come down. And that is a truly subversive skill indeed." (July 2006)
