Visiting artist Diane Willow reflects on the last twenty years of her artistic career.
Diane Willow is a multi-modal artist and creative catalyst. She works among disciplines and media, often at a nexus of art and technology, science and architecture. These seemingly divergent perspectives converge in her practice of art as a socially engaged mode of tuning our attention to common occurrences in everyday places.
She was the catalyst for the Studio Co-Laboratory research collaborative at the University of Minnesota, artist in residence at MIT, Osher Fellow at the Exploratorium, guest professor of New Media Art at the Beijing Film Academy, and curator of two studio-based symposia Wonder Women :: Art & Technology 1968-2008 and Digital Dialogues :: Technology and the Hand.
She is currently Associate Professor in the Interdisciplinary Arts and Participatory Media area within the Department of Art at the University of Minnesota,, with an appointment as artist in residence in Electrical and Computer Engineering, aliate faculty in Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies, and frequent collaborator in the College of Biological Sciences and the School of Architecture.
