Kristin Lucas: Mixed Feelings in Mixed Reality
Artist Kristin Lucas intervenes in systems and paradigms to experiment with new ways of being in a technologized world. Her circuitous works are experience-driven poetic propositions that resonate with humor and philosophical pondering. Recent works are tethered to real-world contexts and scientific data that give gravity and poignancy to virtual forms.
Lucas has been featured in Art in America, Artforum, Engadget, and Hyperallergic, and she is the recent recipient of an Engadget Alternate Realities Grant and a Pioneer Works Tech Residency. Her work has been presented nationally and internationally at venues including Artists Space, FACT Liverpool, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, Haus der Kunst, HeK Basel, ICA Philadelphia, Nam June Paik Art Center, OK Center for Contemporary Art, MoMA, New Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, and ZKM; and at festivals including Cinekid, EarthxFilm, ISEA, Okeechobee Music and Arts, Print Screen, TIFF, Transmediale, World Wide Video, and WSJ Future of Everything. She is represented by And/Or Gallery and Postmasters, and her videos are distributed by Electronic Arts Intermix. Lucas's immersive Augmented Reality experience Dance with flARmingos was selected for the Radiance research platform. Lucas earned her degrees in art from Cooper Union and Stanford University.
