Graduate Fellowships Program 2012—2013
Before my MFA, I studied biomedical engineering. I use my knowledge of kinematics, medical imaging, and programming to develop new perspectives for familiar objects. I am interested in the dependency of identity on perception – how the method of observation can color our reality.
While at Headlands
During my fellowship, I will continue to develop new processes to explore my new surroundings. I am using dyed gelatin blocks to recreate a CT scan. In another project I am forming an image by machining gradated wax, so that different shades of gray are achieved by machining to different depths. The result would be similar to a relief map, but would resolve into a gray scale image when viewed from above. In a third project, I am writing programs that stack the frames of a video to form a volume. I then travel through this volume in different directions. The result is a video piece that blends space with time.
