Katherine Bennett

Media Artist + Assistant Professor
Brooklyn, NY
Katherine Bennett is media artist whose research explores how communication technologies are shaping our identity and pushing us along the continuum of being post human. Bennett utilizes sound and light to represent this shift across people, relationships and activities. She codes and incorporates sensors, electronics, fibers and computer vision to create interactive and responsive multichannel installations and narratives. Her specialty is in creating environments that make perceptible phenomena and processes that aren’t otherwise, such as Alzheimer’s, memory flashbacks or walking through a field of stars. Her latest interactive environments investigate wireless network traffic, internal emotional states, and the changing paradigm of cultural interactions.
