About Me:
Kim Stringfellow is an artist and educator residing in Joshua Tree, California. She teaches multimedia and photography courses at San Diego State University as an associate professor in the School of Art + Design. She received her MFA in Art and Technology from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago in 2000. She is the 2012 recipient of the Theo Westenberger for Artistic Excellence Award. Her transmedia projects bridge cultural geography and environmental concerns using a variety of documentary approaches and media. Her research interests investigate the cultural landscape and history of place, often addressing the repercussions of human interaction and occupation within these landscapes. Through rigorous research focused on a particular subject, community or region she fosters a discussion of complex, interrelated issues for each site. Within her research, she attempts to expose human values and political agendas that form our collective understanding of these places. Ultimately, her projects are designed to create awareness, educate, and create a rich dialogue in relation to the subject at hand.
