Alyson Piskorowski


Alyson Piskorowski graduated from Middlebury College in 1996 with the highest honors in studio arts and a concentration in biochemistry, followed by a masters in landscape architecture from Harvard University’s Graduate School of Design. She then earned her MFA in sculpture and public Art at the University of Washington. Alyson’s work often concentrates on the manipulation of light and shadow.

Untitled, 2014

Metal, Mylar

The piece is a geometric construction comprised of an internal structure overlaid with Mylar strips. The form of the work is derived from the geometry of the space. By using a reflective material, the piece will interact with both its immediate surroundings and with sunlight, creating an interactive experience for those who view it.
