Kristin Lucas

Kristin Lucas (born 1968) is a Brooklyn-based artist whose work in video, installation, performance, and the internet addresses the complexity of her relationship with automation and the psychological effects of rapidly spreading technology. Her work often comments on the complicated responses our bodies undergo while interacting with technology, including the hazards of long-time exposure to electro-magnetic fields and the anxiety we experience when playing video games. Lucas has participated in festivals and exhibitions in the United States and abroad since 1996, including Young and Restless, the Museum of Modern Art, New York. In August 1998 Lucas launched her first web project, Between a Rock and a Hard Drive, with Dia Center for the Arts at http://www.diacenter.org/lucas/. A second site, http:///www.simulsite.com/, was initiated in 1998. Her work in various media is documented on her sites http://www.inch.com and http://www.eai.org.
