Walking, Eating, Sleeping

Laurie Frick

June 11 - Aug. 23, 2013 | Fairgrounds

The artwork of Laurie Frick explores the intersection of technology and creativity as the artist herself adopts a daily regimen of self-tracking that measures her activities and body. In doing so, she shapes a vocabulary of pattern used to construct her intricately hand-built works and installations. Her quantifiable patterns, like her heart rate, the duration of her sleep or body weight are some of the metrics that inspire her colorful and complex works.
