Nina Waisman’s works highlight the roles that gesture, rhythm and mirroring play in forming our thoughts – scientists call such “physical thinking” the pre-conscious scaffolding for human logic. How might our new tech-inflected gestures, then, be shaping our relationships with bodies and systems we connect to when we move with technology? During her residency at Albuquerque Academy, Waisman will make an interactive sound installation in collaboration with 6th-12th grade students. Waisman exhibits nationally and internationally: venues include the House of World Cultures, Berlin; the California Biennial at OCMA; the Museum of Image and Sound, São Paulo, Brazil; and the San Diego Museum of Art.
