Artist Carla Bengtson collaborates with scientists on projects by, for, and with other species. These interdisciplinary projects, situated in wild, domestic, and liminal spaces, speculate on what might be seen and what might be said between species, while revealing how differing bodies and environments shape what we are able to think, do, and say.
Bengtson is a faculty member at the University of Oregon, and an internationally exhibiting artist. She is a recipient of numerous awards, including the Oregon Arts Commission, the Ford Family Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. She holds a BFA from Tyler School of Art, a MFA from Yale School of Art, and participated in the Whitney Independent Study Program.
