Abstract

Sonya Rapoport, a multimedia artist, traces five decades of her career, coalescing art, science and technology. She provides a personal history in a scientific context that leads her from painting and abstract expressionism to computer-assisted interactive installations and webworks. The artist uses the metaphor of the golem, her self-described avatar, as a means to question and explain the autobiographical evolution of her iconography, choice of media and style. Her journey includes the influences on her interdisciplinary art expression in which anthropology, chemistry, botany, religion and topics of gender and transculture are intermittently treated with parody, humor and mysticism.
