I am an American interdisciplinary artist whose work primarily takes the form of kinetic, electronic and interactive sculpture. Before pursuing a career in art, I earned an undergraduate degree in interior design and practiced at an architectural firm in New York for several years. After leaving that field, I went on to receive my MFA in Sculpture/Dimensional Studies. My artwork, which remains strongly rooted in design, focuses on the relationship between language, image and time. It has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, and is currently included in “O’Clock. Time design, design time,” a traveling exhibition originally held at the Triennale Design Museum in Milan, which places my work in the company of artists such as John Cage and Damien Hirst. Other recent exhibitions include SIGGRAPH Asia in Hong Kong; ISEA (the International Symposium on Electronic Art) at the Albuquerque Museum of Art in New Mexico; CYBERFEST in St. Petersburg, Russia; and Sculpture By the Sea in Sydney, Australia. Other institutions that have exhibited my work include the Portland Museum of Art in Maine, the Everson Museum of Art in Syracuse, and various galleries/festivals in the US, UK, Poland, Belgium and Canada. My work has
also been featured on websites such as VVORK and designboom, and included in a Victionary publication titled Typoholic: Material Types in Design.
I have recently been awarded the very prestigious TED Fellowship, a program that, according to their literature, “is designed to bring together young world-changers and trailblazers who have shown unusual accomplishment and exceptional courage.” As a TED2013 Fellow (one of only twenty-one people world-wide, and of only eleven from the US), I will have the opportunity to present my work in a talk at TED2013: “The Young. The Wise. The Undiscovered.”
I currently live in Portland, Maine, and teach sculpture and architecture at Bowdoin College.Curriculum Vitae Artist Statement
