Ginger Elliott Smith

Ginger Elliott Smith is a PhD candidate in art history at Boston University, currently researching the ideological and sociological contexts of art and technoscience. Her dissertation, 'Practicing Big Science: Art, Technology, and Institutions in 1960s and 1970s Southern California,' analyzes a group of Southern California artists who responded to, and often directly incorporated, science and technology into their studio and post-studio practices. Her project is a technical art history that provides thick description of technical and material analysis for each adapted technology and clarifies the degree to which scientific paradigms and regional industrial developments converged to inspire such experimentation.
