Emily Lazerwitz

Emily Lazerwitz is an artist and mathematician born in 1991 in Washington D.C. (USA). She studied at Slade School of Fine Art, UCL, London and Columbia University, New York.

For Lazerwitz a myth is defined as a complex widely believed story that is inherently false yet explains phenomena that are inexplicable in nature. Her work tries to untangle this paradox by looking into structures that use a mythological system of logic to function. It also strives to input a feminist narrative into the technological methods of creation. She lives and works in London.
