Judith F. Baca Artist, Educator, Scholar/Activist
“I am an interdisciplinary artist and scholar who works in large-scale monuments produced for public sites, locally, nationally and internationally. I have in the process of creating my work been engaged in the development of collaborative methods to arrive at consensus between communities in conflict. Often this work has the intention of reclaiming the “commons” or sites of public memory for communities. My recent work has included the development of new multimedia and technologically based methods of community engagement and visualization through the use of film, 3D animations, augmented reality and social media. My artworks have moved increasingly toward the architectural in scope and scale”.
