About the Work
Brooklyn-based multimedia artist Saya Woolfalk has spent a decade creating a fictional utopian universe that blends science fiction, fantasy and cultural anthropology to create a mythos that imagines the culture of tech savvy plant-human hybrids. UVP and the Everson present the latest chapter in Woolfalk’s ongoing narrative, including new video and fabric-based prints made while in residency at Light Work and UVP in 2015, as well as earlier video and sculptural works that provide an overview of the story to date.
