Linda Alterwitz (lindaalterwitz)



Linda Alterwitz is a visual artist whose artwork engages photography, collage and interactive installations. Her projects focus on the unseen rhythms of the human body and those relationships to the natural world. Her creative practice has been informed by a twelve-year exploration of scientific technologies that provide visualizations of our physical and cognitive states.

Through her investigations of art and science, she combines both creative and scientific elements within each frame. Inspired by experimentation with diverse materials and processes, Alterwitz incorporates both traditional and new media techniques by combining scientific images with photographs of the natural world. Motivated by current technology, she captures data driven images derived from state-of-the-art medical diagnostic and thermal imaging. Guided by the internal rhythms of our bodies such as patterns of breath, brain waves and signatures of heat, the work embodies an intangible human experience.

In 2015, Alterwitz was the recipient of the Nevada Arts Council Visual Artist Fellowship. Her work has been published in Smithsonian Magazine, Orion Magazine, The New Statesman, Musee Magazine among others. She has exhibited her work in both traditional exhibition and site-specific installations in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, China, Spain, Israel, Greece and Poland.

Alterwitz lives and works in Las Vegas, Nevada.
