Lindsey french is an artist and educator whose work engages in gestures of sensual and mediated communication plants and landscapes. Her research-based practice draws from media studies, olfaction, botany, and ecology to consider positions of receptivity and marginality as valid and active political and communicative positions. Projects materialize as texts written in collaboration with trees, sound and scent transmissions, and video installations made for plant perception. She has shared her work in places such as the Museum of Contemporary Art and the International Museum of Surgical Science (Chicago), the Taubman College Gallery (University of Michigan, Ann Arbor), and in conjunction with the International Symposium of Electronics Arts (Albuquerque and Vancouver). Recent publications include chapters for Botanical Speculations, Why Look at Plants, and becoming-Botanical, as well as poetry for the journal Forty-Five.She currently teaches as a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Department of Studio Arts at the University of Pittsburgh.
