christine WhittakerAlumni, Class of 2005
I am a sculptor. I have been building media based art works since 1986 in the form of installations, multimedia sculpture, performance and site specific public projects. Exhibited in contemporary art spaces and galleries as well as public. My BFA in Sculpture KCAI (studied with MIT light Fellow Dale Eldred) and MFA U of D (studied with MIT sound fellow Joe Moss). Upon coming to ITP, I was an Athena Fellow via Mark DiSuvero where I spent time producing 16 new sculptures, 5 books and several new media works. Prior to the fellowship, I was with Merril Lynch running their integrated audio-visual history museum in The World Financial Center. As part of my job, I was also asked to redesign the museum. It was destroyed on 9/11/01.
