Wendy Wischer

WENDY WISCHER is an interdisciplinary artist whose artwork includes a variety of media from sculptural objects, to installations, video, sound, non-traditional drawing, photography and public art.  Much of the work is based on blurring the separation between the intrinsic history of working with nature and the cutting edge of new technologies. The conceptual focus highlights environmental issues; finding ways to translate data into personal meaning and create artwork that moves the viewer in poetic ways. Through the research, a wide range of data is sought that can be used to creatively link nature with technology, science with mythology and personal identity with universal connections while addressing our current environmental crisis in hopes of finding impactful ways to connect people more deeply with each other and with the environments they live in.
