Nina Waisman’s work considers technologically driven forms of control and communication, provoked by technology’s interventions in the body’s space and time. Her production ranges from interactive sound-and-sculpture installations to blind-embossed prints of weaponry morphing into modernist form. Recent projects include “Space Shifter”, an interactive installation created for Stephan Stoyanov Gallery in New York City; “Mediawomb”, a collaborative installation with CUBO, shown at gallery727 in Los Angeles and CALIT2/UCSD; “Between”, a solo show of interactive and 2-D works (prints and paintings) at the California Center for the Arts Museum; “Between Bodies”, an interactive installation sonically connecting the gestural acts of people in Tijuana to those of museum visitors, created for the inaugural show of the new international wing of the CECUT museum, Mexico and revised for the FILE show in Sao Paulo, Brasil; and “PITMM”, an interactive installation with Particle Group, raising questions around conflicts between health and financial issues embedded in the nanotech industries, shown at the House of World Cultures in Berlin, the SDMA in San Diego, UCLA and CALIT2 at UCSD.
Upcoming projects include a new commission, combining interactive, 2d and 3d works, for the California Biennial, opening late October, 2010, and online sound projects for Triple Canopy and Version. Waisman holds a B.A., magna cum laude from Harvard University, a B.F.A. in Fine Art from Art Center College of Design, and an MFA in Visual Arts from UCSD; her training as a classical dancer also informs her ongoing investigation of embodied technology.
