Professor Andrea Wollensak
Andrea Wollensak is an artist and a professor in the Department of Studio Art and Co-Associate Director of Events at the Ammerman Center for Arts and Technology at Connecticut College, USA. She teaches courses in design studies and digital processes and coordinates the Center’s colloquia lecture series and curates exhibitions.
Wollensak’s creative research examines and redefines processes and technologies of location and landscape, mining the rich convergence of place, identity and history in site-specific and site-defined art works. Wollensak is currently working on a series of projects in Iceland working with seismic data and site narrative. Artist residencies and exhibitions include the Hafnarborg Museum, Iceland (2011), mapping sound artwork featured in the International Gothenburg Biennial in Sweden and sponsored by IASPIS (2007), GPS mapping and community-based site projects in Saint-Lô, France (2003), Rockefeller Study and Conference Center in Bellagio, Italy (2000), Lorient, France (2000), and the Banff Centre for the Arts in Canada (1996).
