The Artist

Jenifer Wightman(b. 1973, Claremont, New Hampshire)

Jenifer Wightman's work employs scientific tropes to incite curiosity about ecological phenomena. She is interested in poetically articulating the incongruities between our current economic growth paradigm (conceptually unlimited) and our emerging notion of sustainability (limited by finite resources). Using colorful micro ecosystems as models for witnessing patterns of growth and decay, she is curious how we might conceive of an ecological rationality by reflecting on the co-evolution of cultures and their supporting ecosystem. She studied at Carnegie Mellon University, Pittsburgh, PA (BS 1994) and Cornell University, Ithaca, NY (MS 2002).
