Per Capita

Melissa F Clarke [US]

Melissa F. Clarke is an interdisciplinary artist whose work employs data and generative self-programmed compositional environments.  She works heavily with ice, the information related to it and the terrain shaped by it.  Clarke often works across mediums, while looking at hybridizations of wilderness and technological spaces—towards considerations of nature at the nexus of human experience, myth, science, and information collection. Clarke received her Masters degree from New York University’s Interactive Telecommunications Program, with a two-year Tisch School of the Arts Fellowship. She was a recent artist in residence at the Simons Center for Geometrty and Physics. Her work has been exhibited widely in New York City and internationally, including: 319 Scholes (NY), Eyebeam (NY), Issue Project Room (NY), the Queens Museum (NY), the Electronic Music Foundation, SUNY Stony Brook (NY), and the International Biennial of Contemporary Art ULA-2010 (Venezuela).
