Patricia Olynyk

Patricia Olynyk

Her work examines the wars in which culture and institutional structures shape our knowledge and understanding of history, science, and the natural world. Appropriating medical imaging technologies and methods of collecting, documenting, and exhibiting scientific artifacts. Her work addresses how interpretation fluctuates between fact and speculation. Her installations, sculptures, photography and performances operate at the intersections between sensing and knowing, and order and affect. http://www.patriciaolynyk.com/
