Shoshana Fink is an inter-disciplinary artist focusing on photography, video, sound, olfaction, and installation, whose work is situated at the intersection of visual culture, technology, and ecology. In this context, her practice critically reflects on the relationship between living organisms and their environment. It is the goal of her practice to explore stories of symbiosis, or “making-with,” both in human and other-than-human contexts. As art-making provides a transformative network for writing novel narratives, my work utilizes multiple mediums to mirror not only what is, but also to imagine what can be.
Shoshana is based in Minneapolis, Minnesota. For fifteen years, she worked as a Los Angeles-based film producer and director, returning to Minneapolis, Minnesota in 2018. In 2022, Shoshana graduated with an M.F.A. in visual studies from MCAD. She has served as an Artist in Residence at the Masonic Institute for the Developing Brain at the University of Minnesota and as an Art Lecturer at the University of Wisconsin River Falls. She is currently adjunct faculty in Media Arts at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design.
