Alison Sant is a media artist, with a background in digital media and architecture. Her work explores the city as both a site for investigation and intervention and has often focused on the hidden dynamics of the urban landscape. Her most recent work uses media technologies to both capture the temporal events of the city as well as to examine the ways in which these technologies reform our notions of the urban landscape. She has exhibited nationally and internationally including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, VIPER Basel, and ISEA. Sant teaches classes in new media at the San Francisco Art Institute, Mills College, and the California College of the Arts. She has been awarded artist residencies at the Exploratorium in 2005, Djerassi Resident Artists Program in 2001, Headlands Center for the Arts in 2000, and the Tryon Center for Visual Art in 1999. Sant is also a recipient of a 2003 Creative Work Fund Grant. She received her BFA from New York University in 1993 in the Departments of Photography and Interactive Telecommunications and received her Masters in Design at the College of Environmental Design, University of California Berkeley in 2004.
