Lisa KorposFounding Directorat The Community Bee Clinic
Lisa Korpos (she/her) is a Portland-based interdisciplinary artist who investigates non-human perception, embodiment, and the aesthetics of vulnerability. Her research-based art practice is rooted in the cognitive and ecological sciences, but her projects materialize as visual and tactile experiences, taking form as interactive installation, sculpture, digital media, creative nonfiction writing, and drawing. Collaborating with human and non-human bodies is an integral part of her process, with birds, honeybees, laboratory rats, and bottlenose dolphins acting as the subjects, co-creators, and participants within her work. Korpos holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Department of Visual Arts at UC San Diego, along with baccalaureate degrees in Studio Art and Cognitive Science from the same institution. Her works have been featured in exhibitions at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, Other Places Art Fair, the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2) Gallery, and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art, among others.
Korpos is the founding director and primary bee care provider at the Community Bee Clinic (www.communitybeeclinic.org)
