Meet at The Collider (1 Haywood Street, Asheville 28801)

Anrika Rupp is an artist, photographer, and engineer whose works explore the intersections of the visual arts, mathematics, and science. Her work has been featured in solo and group exhibitions in art galleries, museums, and art fairs in the United States and South America. A graduate of the Parsons School of Design and Columbia University School of Engineering, her career has spanned commercial graphic design, photography, satellite digital image processing, and digital communications protocols. Her newest photographic series documents the human impact of climate change.

For tonight’s talk, Rupp discusses the long dialogue between the arts and sciences, her experiments with photographic permutations, and how her interests in human perception, cosmic phenomena, and data are reflected in her three-dimensional work.

After the talk, join us for a free artist reception at Contemporaneo Asheville (4 Biltmore Avenue, Asheville 28801).

Presented in partnership with The Collider and Contemporaneo Asheville.
