Katherine Bennett is a media artist, who uses programming and physical computing to present interactive installations. She earned her Master of Fine Arts from The School of Art Institute of Chicago and has won several grants. Her most recent exhibition is called “The Noise of the Heartbeat or Whatever the Hell”(2017) in New York, NY.
Her work, Sleeping Thoughts (2011) is an installation where she put up lights hanging from the ceiling at different lengths. Audience can walk around this room and immerse themselves into a 3-D constellation, almost. I admire this project because it gives me peace and relaxation. I like how pretty and simple it looks as well. It amazes me how much you can do with a room, to create such different atmosphere and vibes.
