About this Speaker

Stephanie is an interdisciplinary artist, creative researcher, and curator interested in the influence of digital networks on contemporary aesthetics and the production of subjectivity. As Founder of Cornell University’s first art biennial, Stephanie led its focus on the intersections between art, design and nanoscience. This landmark event for the university included a site-specific, 46-foot sculpture by internationally acclaimed artist Kimsooja made in collaboration with the Wiesner Nanomaterials Lab and was the subject of ‘Collaboration on Campus: Nanotechnology and Contemporary Art’, a documentary by Art21 (Art in the 21st Century). The resulting iridescent 4-metre-high artwork is the first sculpture to use nanopolymer on an architectural scale, and recently exhibited at Frieze Sculpture 2018, London.
