GAZELL.iO welcomes Ashley Zelinskie as their December resident.
Ashley Zelinskie is Brooklyn-based conceptual artist utilizing a post-New Media approach, wherein the media employed are merely vehicles in service of underlying concepts, she is attempting the process of translating our vast history into an eternal and universal language, while focusing a lens on our place as a small part of a larger whole. Her works span a variety of media, from large- and small-scale sculpture to canvas and print works, each created using cutting edge technology such as 3D printing, computer-guided laser cutting, and satellite plating technology. Her work focuses on visualizing data in abstract forms and finding new and interesting ways to describe complex ideas.
Zelinskie’s work has been featured by The New York Times, Vice, Popular Science, and Hyperallergic. Her work forms part of the permanent collection of the US Department of State Art in Embassies Program, has been exhibited at Sotheby’s New York and most recently the ArtScience Museum in Singapore. Zelinskie is a former resident of New Inc.—the New Museum’s Art and Technology Incubator—and the Shapeways x Museum of Art and design “Out of Hand” exhibition residency. She is currently working in collaboration with NASA, the European Space Agency, and the Smithsonian and is a graduate of the Rhode Island School of Design.
On 6 December, 2022 from 6 to 7 PM (GMT), join GAZELL.iO in conversation with Ashley Zelinskie and Instrument & Calibration Scientist at the European Space Agency, Sarah Kendrew, for an exclusive online discussion about the future of digital art and space exploration. RSVP link below.
Zelinskie and Kendrew will discuss Zelinskie’s recent exhibition at ONX Studio, a performance and exhibition space in Midtown Manhattan that is a partnership of the Onassis Foundation and New Inc, the New Museum’s art and tech incubator. The exhibition, Unfolding the Universe: First Light, featured a range of new-media works including 3-D-printed sculptures, a VR installation, and a screen print augmented with interactive lights. Kendrew and Zilenskie will explore the exciting ways digital art and new media can invite new audiences to probe the mysterious structures and origins of our universe and our place within it.
