Alyce Santoro is a conceptual/sound artist and musician with a background in science. By cultivating practices that allow for engaged, active looking and listening, the notion of objectivity can be explored—is the observer ever truly separate from that which is being observed? Using field recording, invented frameworks for improvised music, collage (both sonic and visual), drawing, and writing, the dynamic/dialectic between the looker and the seen, and the listener and the heard, can be examined. Santoro holds a BS in Biology, a Certificate in Scientific Illustration, and a MA in Environmental Humanties (Nature-Culture-Sustainability Studies) from Rhode Island School of Design.
