Heather Dewey-Hagborg is an transdisciplinary artist, programmer and educator who is interested in exploring art as research and public inquiry. Traversing media ranging from algorithms to DNA, her work seeks to question fundamental assumptions underpinning perceptions of human nature, technology and the environment. Examining culture through the lens of information, Heather creates situations and objects embodying concepts, probes for reflection and discussion.
Heather has shown work internationally at events and venues including the New York Public Library, Ars Electronica in Linz, the Poland Mediations Bienniale, the Science Gallery Dublin, University of Technology Gallery in Sydney, Museum Boijmans in Rotterdam, Jaaga art and technology center in Bangalore, and the Monitor Digital Festival in Guadalajara. She has exhibited nationally at PS1 Moma, the New Museum, Eyebeam, Clocktower Gallery, 92Y Tribeca, Issue Project Room, and Splatterpool in New York City, Grounds for Sculpture in New Jersey, and CEPA Gallery in Buffalo among many others. In addition to her individual work she has collaborated with the collective Future Archaeology, with video artist Adriana Varella and with artists Aurelia Moser, Allison Burtch, and Adam Harvey.
