Research Interests
Katie Duffy creates carnal and colorful transmedia mashups that protrude outside of easy definition and circle cheekily around deep issues of humanity. Duffy’s interest in emerging technologies and their relationship to the evolution of the human animal is what drives their practice. Duffy references a variety of bio/natural forms, looking for pattern mimicry in both macro and microorganisms and systems. Gliding between moving image, sculpture, digital fabrication, interaction and design, Duffy is drawn simultaneously to the earnest and the absurd, circling cheekily around deep issues of humanity and searching steadfast for connection, meaning and purpose.
