Structuring Somnolence Avatar


Lisa Carrie Goldberg is a Canadian-born multidisciplinary artist currently practicing in Perth while completing a Masters of Biological Arts with SymbioticA at The University of Western Australia. Her projects often take the form of full-sensory installations that mimic psychological and sociological experiments. Her work examines the realm of art and science, covering topics in neuroscience, anthropometry and microbiology. The presentation of her projects function as teaching tools, which exceed merely representational work. For Lisa, being an artist means having a social responsibility to her surroundings. One aspect of this process involves research and collaborations with non-artists. As a component of her thesis, she has recently completed a two-year investigation into the semantic and diagrammatic correlations between sleep science and art. This process involved a series of experimental all-night performances held within a sleep laboratory. Lisa earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts, with double distinctions, from Massachusetts College of Art and Design. Her works have been shown in Canada, United States and Australia and she has recently completed a three-month residency at The Perth Institute of Contemporary Art.
