Kelly Monico is developing a site-specific installation that visually articulates how social networks intersect with ritual, mood and landscape. She created a system using symbols and patterns to demonstrate the relationship between context, place and emotion.
Her research also investigates networks and the ability to increase accessibility while sustaining emotional connectedness within a community. She will be presenting her research and work in progress on Saturday, July 15th at 8pm.
Kelly Monico received her Master of Fine Arts degree from the Electronic Media Arts and Design Program at the University of Denver in 2005. Monico currently teaches design and digital media at Metropolitan State University of Denver as an Assistant Professor of Art in the Communication Design program. She has shown her work nationally and internationally, which includes the Sante Fe Complex in New Mexico, Videomedeja Audio/Visual Festival in Serbia, The Banff Centre, and the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art in Helsinki, Finland. http://www.kellymonico.com
