Tracy Abbott Szatan


Tracy Abbott Szatan is a lens-based artist working across video, photography, glass, and installation to explore the tenuous and shifting edges between the perceptible and imperceptible, the conditions of viewing that humans create for themselves, and how these conditions shape self-perceptions and imaginings of what’s possible. Her current research activates the relationship of optical technologies to earth materials to consider the natural and manmade processes of transformation that are the bases of photography and other imaging technologies and to engage human embeddedness in deep time. Her work has been exhibited internationally, including at The Center for Performance Research, Plaxall Gallery and Trestle Art Space (NY); Highways Performance Space and Raid Projects, (LA); Agora Collective (Berlin); and Spier Light Art Festival (Cape Town). She received her BA from Brown University and her MFA fromThe Ohio State University where she also co-founded the film program, Cinéseries at the Wexner Center for the Arts
