Alyson Shotz: The Substance of Space

Alyson Shotz, b.1964, lives and works in Brooklyn, NY.  For the past 28 years she has been engaging, through her sculptural practice, in an artistic investigation into the physical qualities of space, light and matter—the building blocks of our physical world.  Through exhaustive empirical experimentation in various materials including metal, porcelain, string, and glass beads, she explores the structure and substance of space itself from a humanistic perspective: what is it, what is it made of, how does it shape everything we see around us?
