Look At This Thing, Urban Cartographies Of Attention is an installation and gallery activation of sculptural glass, digitally processed imagery, and motion-activated neon lights.

About the Artist-

Christen Baker is a multidisciplinary artist whose work explores the complex relationship between attention, desire, and the economy that emerges from it. Baker earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Ceramics from the Kansas City Art Institute and a Master of Fine Arts from Tyler School of Art and Architecture, where she was awarded the Assistantship for Tyler Information Technology and Digital Services. Baker’s interest in exploring the intersection of technology, new media, and visual art has led her to work in a variety of mediums, including glass, neon, sculpture, photography, and 3D scanning. She has utilized these mediums to create a new visual lexicon that speaks to the subtle and often indirect ways in which attention and desire shape our perception of the world around us. Baker was a lecturer in Ceramics and Kiln-Formed Glass at Kansas City Institute and has completed residencies at Belger Arts in Kansas City, MO, and the International Ceramics Studio in Kecskemet, Hungary. Most recently, Christen curated an exhibition titled NO SIGNAL at Stella Elkins Tyler Gallery in Philadelphia, PA, where she showcased her work and the work of other artists who explore similar themes. In recognition of her work as an MFA student at Tyler, she was awarded the Leroy Nieman Fellowship in Glass at Ox-Bow School of Art.
