1981 · United States
Exploring the tension between expression and technology, Addie Wagenknect's work blends conceptual work with forms of robotics and hacking sculpture together. Wagenknect plays with the concept of absence and the inheritance we leave behind and, very cleverly, she creates visually beautiful forms through disturbing means. Her work is rooted with conceptual ideas that act as a means for a psychological experience. Often explored in her work are topics such as pop culture, feminist theory, new media and open source software and hardware.
Born in Oregon in 1981, Wagenknecht now lives between New York and Austria. She holds a Masters degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University and has previously held fellowships at Eyebeam Art + Technology Center in New York City, Culture Lab UK, Institute HyperWerk for Postindustrial Design Basel (CH), and The Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Me.
