Suzanne Kelser incorporates structures from the Internet into her drawings and invents images based on technology principles such as uniqueness, connectivity, capacity, and growth. She approaches these unseen layers of technology as an integral part of our cultural language.
Suzanne Kelser has exhibited her work at the Islip Art Museum, A.I.R., 101 Wooster, and 55 Mercer galleries in New York. Other venues include the Bronx River Art Center, Kingsborough Community College Art Gallery and the Kentler International Drawing Space. Her work has been reviewed by The New York Times. Suzanne Kelser’s Internet based drawings were shown at the Philoctetes Center during its Web Hive lecture series, and she recently completed a residency at the Virginia Center for the Creative Arts. Suzanne Kelser received her B.A. in Art from Queens College. Her work may be viewed at the Drawing Center’s Online Portfolio Program in New York.
While in residence at Governors Island, Suzanne Kelser intends to combine images, text and numbers in drawings that capture technology in flux, specifically the additive process of technology growth. With drawings overlapping each other, the site-specific installation will be reminiscent of a computer network planning session. As an open reference room, the site will function as a legend for the unseen algorithms, systems and methods used in the invisible technology that surrounds the island.
