[ISEA2013] Artist Statement: Sophie Kahn – 04302011 (2011)

Artist  Statement

Laser portraits that appear incomplete and fragmented as a result of disruptions, caused by the models’ movement and breathing during the scanning process, suggest a metaphor of instability in our digitally mediated identities.

  • Sophie Kahn is a digital artist and sculptor, whose work addresses technology’s failure to capture the unstable human body. She grew up in Melbourne, Australia, and is now based in Brooklyn, NY. She earned a BA (Hons) in Fine Art/History of Art at Goldsmiths College, University of London; a Graduate Certificate in Spatial Information Architecture from RMIT University, Melbourne; and an MFA in Art and Technology Studies at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, where she was awarded a full tuition Trustee Scholarship.  SophieKahn.net
