Lindsey French Visiting Assistant Professor

MFA, School of the Art Institute of Chicage
BA, Hampshire College

Lindsey French is an artist and educator whose work engages in gestures of sensual and mediated communication with landscapes and the nonhuman. Motivated by respectful collaboration with the natural world, she practices and proposes alternatives to human-centered ecosystems in an era of climate change and ecological crises. Embracing a number of mediation strategies, her projects materialize as texts written in collaboration with trees, scent transmissions, performative lectures, and video documentation of dialogues with landscapes. She has shared her work in places such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the International Museum of Surgical Science in Chicago, Vox Populi in Philadelphia, and in conjunction with the International Symposium of Electronics Arts in both Albuquerque and Vancouver.
