Hillary Mushkin is a visual artist and researcher. She leads "Incendiary Traces," an art and research initiative that she started to consider how landscape imaging helps authorities and the public visualize conflict zones. She frequently collaborates with other artists, architects, poets, scholars, and technologists. Mushkin's projects have been exhibited internationally including at the Freud Museum (London), the Getty Museum (Los Angeles), and White Columns (New York). She has also worked in non-art contexts including the 29 Palms Marine Base, a fishing boat, and the Mexico City surveillance center. Mushkin is Research Professor of Art and Design at California Institute of Technology (Caltech).
