Kathleen J Graves is an Assistant Professor of Art who has taught at New York University, Sarah Lawrence College and the International Center of Photography in NYC. She was the Director of the Advanced Digital Print Studio at New York University where she taught artist's methods on the computer and the large format digital print from 2005 - 2011. Kathleen is the author of two current bodies of work that interpret interactions of humans with technology. The series called 'Bot Dialectics'are about making Gardens in consultation with Nanobots, who are Futuristic Life Forms. The Bots help direct and value the garden model and the purpose of the garden becomes a nexus of reflection and action. These 'Bot Dialectics' are part of the evolving human to tech to nature discussions wherein the Garden is an environment and art form necessary to human survival. Her other concurrent series 'Longing For Certain Things' reflects on the ghosts of medieval within technology. She alters identities and comments on sociological concerns utilizing cyborgs, artificial intelligence and historical references, particularly the European medieval. Referencing medieval customs and visuality, she brings future technologies into the mix imagining what may happen.
