With a spontaneous spirit and non-hierarchical approach to materials and process, New York City-based artist Lindsay Packer borrows elements like plywood, furniture, and window screens to create her environments. She activates the elements with light or ink, actions, motors or a press, and then returns them to their original environments when a project or exhibition ends. This process encourages viewers to become more aware of temporary manifestations of color and form in their daily lives. More
