Summer Traylor Lisa Korpos Madeline Lopez
Summer holds a BA in Environmental Studies & Earth Science and a MEM in Environmental Science & Management. She has worked all over the Western United States working with seabirds, plants, marine mammals, and invasive species.
Lisa holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Department of Visual Arts at UC San Diego, along with baccalaureate degrees in Studio Art and Cognitive Neuroscience from the same institution. She is also a former first-generation community college student.
Lisa makes interspecies art—interactive experiences that blur the line between the human and non-human animal worlds. Her research-based art practice is all about investigating nonhuman perception and cognition, vulnerability, and embodiment. Some of her past projects include a radical veterinary practice for pollinators, an explorable landscape designed for pet rats, a portrait series of captive zoo dolphins, and an English-to-prairie dog language translator! She has been fortunate enough to exhibit her critter-based creations in spaces like the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, the Other Places Art Fair, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology, and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art.
