Professor Sheridan was awarded a Workshop grant by the National Endowment for the Arts for use during the 1974-1975 academic year. She applied the funds towards the creation of Yony, a publication containing work produced by students in Generative Systems classes, along with snippets of poetry, meditations on technology, images of classroom activities and commentary by faculty affiliated with the program. Each issue of the journal was unique and focused on a specific theme, question or method of creation. (1) For example, Volume 1, Number 4 of Yony (published in May 1975) focused on electrostatic imaging techniques (the production of graphics by electrical charge). (2)
