“It is my hope that my sculptures may in some way mark the place where biology and technology meet and confront the viewer with a sense of both invitation and threat,” says the artist. “I regard these architectural projects as sites that are both seductive and threatening and as structures that offer an uneasy embrace.”
Kendall Buster received her Masters degree in sculpture from Yale University and is a professor at Virginia Commonwealth University.
