California, USA
Kristine Diekman is an internationally known media artist committed to making socially integrated work. Her experimental films and new media installations are interview based, and strive to give voice to the populations and individuals whose life experiences might not otherwise be heard. Her work includes, "Corpse and Mirror", based on a monologue by performance artist Tony Allard about his father's institutionalization in a state mental hospital; "United & Severed", a media installation developed in response to the experiences of women with traumatic physical injuries; “Called Out”, a series of interactive prototypes based on the experiences of a war veteran. Her work has exhibited in over 200 venues worldwide. She has been awarded artistic residencies at the MacDowell Colony and the Banff New Media Institute to further her work in physical computing. She has received grants and awards from the Cal Humanities, Paul Robeson Foundation, New York State Council on the Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, California State Arts Council, Creative Time, and the Leichtag Family Foundation, amongst others. Professor of Arts and Technology, she works closely with the Southern California community as Director of Video in the Community, which she founded, to produce videos in collaboration with community.
