Waite is a research-artist whose experimental video works examine the meta-meanings found in unlikely correspondences between science and myth. Native to New York City and based in Berlin, Waite studied Physics at MIT and 3D Computer Graphics at the MIT Media Lab. Her artistic process incorporates a dual path of inquiry, balancing aesthetic exploration with innovative, technical realization. She creates sensual, non-linear, visual poems which playfully explore the human oeuvre. Waite has held positions at Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, and the Academy of Film &amp;Television (HFF), Babelsberg. She has been a fellow at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, the Academy of Media Arts Cologne, and other institutions. Her works have been exhibited and received prizes internationally.</p> Berlin computer animation Experimental Film New York City Research-Art Video-Art/Installation Thu, 27 Aug 2009 11:01:32 +0000 cleawaite 434 at http://faces-l.net Laura Splan http://faces-l.net/en/node/231 <p><strong>BIOGRAPHY</strong></p> <p>Laura Splan is a New York based mixed media artist. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of California, Irvine where she originally studied Biological Sciences. She received her Master of Fine Art in Sculpture from Mills College in Oakland, CA. Her conceptually driven work employs a variety of materials and processes that usually have a feminine sensibility about them. Unsettling scientific and medical imagery are foiled by more comfortable domestic imagery and craft processes. Likewise, the seemingly familiar and benign are subverted by the anatomical and biological. She often uses her own body in the production of materials for her work such as blood and discarded facial peel. She recently became a certified phlebotomist.</p> <p><a href="http://faces-l.net/en/node/231">read more</a></p> artist biomedical computer animation computerized machine embroidery conceptual digital imaging domesticated viscera domesticity drawing New York photography sculpture video Sat, 10 Jan 2009 16:04:13 +0000 Laura Splan 231 at http://faces-l.net
