Kristin Nason's work functions as a data set in an ongoing investigation of what it means to be a squishy being in a world with hard edges. Through physical engagement with common objects and materials, she explores the capacities and limitations of the body in relation to its environment. The work exists as a series of interrelated games situated at the interface of the self and a crash-test world. Nason received her BFA from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 2001, and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2011.
