"Creating Art for the Purpose of Looking at the Universe as an Operating System"

Allison Kudla , PhD is currently living in Seattle, Washington. Since 2012, she has been working at the Institute for Systems Biology. Before starting that role, she was an artist-in-residence and faculty member at the Srishti School of Art, Design and Technology in Bangalore, India. In 2011, she was awarded her Doctorate of Philosophy from the University of Washington’s Center for Digital Arts and Experimental Media (DXARTS). Her practice-based PhD focused on  creating art for the purpose of looking at the universe as an operating system. With that lens, she pursued finding and accentuating “algorithms” embedded in living biological systems and processes within an artistic framework. Prior to her PhD work, she earned a BFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, 2002, with an emphasis on art and technology studies. She continues to find inspiration at the intersections of science, art, technology and design and aims her practice at creating unexpected experiences through these intersections.
