In 2017, I was a participant in the Ligo Project’s “Art of Science” program. Some of my works, made in collaboration with the lab of Jayne Raper, will be on view during the program’s multimedia gallery night, along with the works of five other artist-and-scientist partners.
My photographs and digitally altered drawings were inspired by two forms of imaging that I learned about through the lab: the western blot, a technique used to detect proteins in a sample, and the 3D models and animations of the motility and morphometry of swimming parasites called trypanosomes.
Along with three other August artists-in-residence at Kingsbrae International Residence for the Arts (KIRA), I was a guest on the Rob Patry Live show, and the episode is now available on YouTube! I appear in the second and third segments of the program, talking about a range of topics: the residency, the nature of the place and its relationship to my work, being an artist, living and biking in Brooklyn, Chicago, and St. Andrews (sections 20:25–25:00; 34:18–37:58).
I will be showing some recent drawings in a group exhibition and works-in-progress in my studio, which will be open to the public September 23–24. On view will be works I made earlier in 2017 and during a month spent in New Brunswick, Canada.
