About her work:
Christa Donner investigates the human/animal organism and its metaphors. Her practice combines material exploration and social exchange to propose speculative models that move between the emotional architecture of our own bodies and the layered histories of the world we inhabit. Her most recent work draws on the social systems of other organisms, feminist science fiction, and her community. Using watercolor on paper, animation and installation, her work proposes new models for living, working, learning and creating. This speculative studio work is amplified by the creative thinkers and cultural workers raising children that she meets and interviews through Cultural ReProducers.
