Competition: US & Canada
Luba Drozd is an installation artist working with site-specific sound, 3D animation, and sculpture. Her works are composed using vibrations that form sonic spaces alongside sculptural projections. The installations re-orient architecture through repetition and offset of materials, sound reflections, and parallax of vision. Her pieces touch on the universe’s timelessness, the transformation of nature, and the shifting awareness of time and matter, gesturing to how intangible spaces within us, such as memory, knowledge, and perception, are controlled and regimented.
She is the recipient of the NYSCA/NYFA Fellowship in Digital and Electronic Arts, MacDowell Fellowship, Yaddo Residency, Millay Colony Residency, Pioneer Works Technology Residency, BRIC Media Arts Fellowship, New Work Grant from Eastern State Penitentiary Historic Site. Her installations are commissioned and exhibited at such institutions as the Hessel Museum of Art, Knockdown Center, and Bronx Museum of Art. Born in Lviv, Ukraine, she received a BFA from Pratt Institute and an MFA from Bard College.
