132 West 21st Street, 7th Floor New York, NY 10011

Genevieve Hoffman will present new work completed during her summer residency with the Visible Futures Lab. As part of her ongoing Financial Landscapes series, Genevieve explores data visualization and implements digital fabrication to create physical three-dimensional renderings of topological terrains generated from stock market data. Genevieve will discuss her research into algorithmic and high frequency trading, and the role that technology plays in shaping the landscape of financial systems. She will draw metaphorical and literal connections between finance and the environment, showing how financial system profit from climate change and the extraction of natural resources.

Genevieve is an artist and designer working at the intersections of research, data, science, sustainability and design. Using digital software and traditional materials, she renders complex systems in tangible forms. Technology is the underpinning of all of her work, as both a medium and subject of inquiry. She is especially concerned with the planned obsolescence built into the disposable culture of our digital era, as well as the relationship between technology and the natural resources that make it possible. Recently, she has explored non-monetary currencies, the forces and interrelated systems of the global economy, and the infrastructure that makes it all run.

She has exhibited at galleries and festivals including: 3LD Art and Technology Center (NY), 319 Scholes (NY), Intersection for the Arts (CA), Urban Prototyping (CA), Athens Slingshot (GA), University of Buffalo (NY), and the New York Hall of Science (NY). Her work has appeared in publications such as Good Magazine, The Atlantic, Architizer and Gizmodo, and she has spoken at various universities, including the Rhode Island School of Design, University of Georgia, and SUNY Stonybrook. Genevieve graduated from Brown University with a BA in Visuals Arts, and a concentration in New Media. She is the recipient of a Creative Arts Council grant from Brown University and a Tisch School of the Arts Graduate Fellowship. After receiving her Master’s degree from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at NYU, she began a research residency with the program last fall.
