Kristin Smith is an interdisciplinary artist whose recent creative research has centered on the concept of an intelligent body where the body’s thoughts are realized through movement. Using photography, video projection, and installation, Smith highlights evidence of this intelligence. Most recently she collaborated with professional dancer Naomi Brand in her MFA thesis exhibition at the Nickle Arts Museum in Calgary, Canada.
During her CELLspace residency, Smith plans to expand the work to include those without professional movement training in order to address the intelligence inherent in all bodies.
