Working with and nurturing eccentric public spaces, Laurel Beckman highlights perception and public display. Attending to themes at the crossroads of consciousness + social conditions, meta-physics + science, Beckman’s practice investigates perceptual phenomena, language, the built environment, and affect. Employing a wide range of media and distribution strategies, her sanctioned and unsanctioned projects often enlist commercial and civic spaces in efforts to contribute meaningfully to the cultural landscape. She is a professor of art at the University of California Santa Barbara.
