Isabel Beavers is a multi-media artist and educator working out of Boston and Los Angeles. Her work explores ecologies, environmental histories and scientific storytelling through multimedia installation. Beavers’ work has been presented, exhibited, and screened at MIT Museum (2019), Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston (2019), Icebox Project Space (2019), Framingham State University (2018), Humbolt-Universität zu Berlin Thaer-Institut (2018), Mountain Time Arts (2017), Emerson Media Arts Center (2017) among others. She holds an MFA from the SMFA at Tufts University and a BS from the University of Vermont.
At CultureHub, Isabel will develop Paradise 2020, an artistic and curatorial project that explores climate change in the context of emerging media and technology. Climate change stories are presented through 4d animation, parametric audio, gaming, and drone technology. The work interrogates how media and the circulation of image operates to desensitize the public to disaster stories. It underscores how technology can be simultaneously destructive and ameliorative. Paradise 2020 seeks resonance and progression through collaboration in the face of climate change.
