In her professional career, Kristi has worked with Minuteman Press New England, The Yankee Candle Co, Deluxe Corporation and most recently Time, etc. These places taught her a variety of office specific skills which have made Kristi a valuable designer to work with. Through her expertise in commercial printing, you can be rest assured your project will print correctly the first time!
Exhibition and Publication on the Conservation of Orchids
In collaboration with Senior Scientist, Dennis Whigham and the Smithsonian Environmental Research Center (SERC), we present a project to produce and display original artwork juxtaposed next to a collection of photographic images from the libraries of SERC to present an exhibition and publication educating the general public on the conservation of orchids by utilizing the art world as platform for outreach and education.
Partnering Institution: Smithsonian Environmental Research Center
This project was conceived through a discussion on 3D printing and it’s uses in science and the medical industry. During a particular residency, I was intrigued by the thought of combining organic material with 3D printing; to see if I can emulate the water networks – xylem – within the plants I had been working with. I thought that it would be compelling to combine 3D computerized design with plant physiology and modern machinery. To understand the sculptural depth that these plants had that came naturally through Mother Nature, but also to help understand my own work.
Cubesat Satellite Gallery
Conceived for a desire to dissolve the physical boundaries of a gallery and gallery-viewing, the Cubesat Satellite Gallery was designed so anyone, anywhere in the world can view a work of art, which is accessed through an app that is connected to the Cubesat Satellite device. This app, allows the user to send and receive a work of art; either by an artist, or artwork done by themselves to the device, which is then projected.
Water Testing for Electrography
Water is a conductive material. This project is site specific, in that samples of contaminated water are collected from effected areas; these samples are tested normally for heavy metals in the lab, and then noted. In the studio, these samples are placed in a non-conductive carrier which is then used as subject matter for exposing with electricity onto photosensitive paper. In theory, the intensity of the conductivity of the metals should be reflected in the photosensitive paper, creating compelling works of art.
In development. Currently finding ways to create a relief of the ground. This project is also called, "Printing the Land" in an effort to produce an image of a relief casting of a surface area on the ground. May develop into an interesting way to study surfaces and the textures that are left behind.
