Kara J. Schmidt (US)

Kara J. Schmidt is an interdisciplinary artist living in New York City. She works in a variety of media including video projection, site-specific installation, sculpture with found objects, drawing on nontraditional surfaces, and computer glitches. She is interested in the politics of how space is experienced. In particular, how architecture perpetuates hierarchies amongst people in public places, and how these borders can be tactfully and productively resisted. Within this context, Kara is interested in how the use of line can be used as a way to track human progress within space, and how that is affected in both human and non-human timescales. As of May 2014, she will have an MFA in Digital and Interdisciplinary Art Practice (DIAP) from City College CUNY.
