A multimedia artist using photography, installation and the Internet, Kim Stringfellow creates "hybrid documentary forms" which explore important environmental and ecological issues.
"The majority of these projects address land use practices and the repercussions of human development within the western United States. Each project evolves from a rigorously researched area of interest on a particular subject, community or region to discuss complex, interrelated issues of the chosen site. With my research, I try to expose the human values and political agendas that form our understanding of these places."
Projects exploring issues such as the Salton Sea and Salmon culture in the Pacific Northwest use the Internet as a springboard for public discourse on the subject. Her well-designed and artful websites frequently incorporate public online participation as well as museum and gallery installations. The artist's journey from site to research, website to gallery installation bring complex environmental issues to the public through engaging and powerful imagery.
