Alyce Santoro is a sound and visual artist with a background in biology and scientific illustration. Her field recordings, invented frameworks for improvised music, collages (both sonic and visual), drawings, and writings are artifacts of ongoing phenomenological explorations. She is particularly interested in practices that can challenge notions of objectivity and serve to illuminate the dynamic/dialectic between the looker and the seen, the listener and the heard—is the observer ever truly separate from that which is being observed?
