My individual work as an artist has developed within the structure of a visual diary - a journal, perhaps a journey. "Diary of Images", the name I have given to the body of my work, is an on-going process, a record of events, an exposé of cultural issues, a receptacle of personal and collective memories. From photo-silkscreen to video, from physical to digital, the body of my work in the last 30 years can be described as an open hybrid book. At present, I have added olfactory art as a new medium and its capacity to resurface emotions and individual/collective memories.
I am interested in work that involves politics, gender and ethnic stereotypes, privilege, power, and science fiction/fantasy. I have also worked in several nonprofit art organizations and am very interested in visual and media literacy and education.

I am currently making instalations and performance in the virtual world of Secondlife. This has been my prefered creative platform for the last two years because of the possiblity to meet international artists and bring together most 2 and 3D mediums, like multi-media, sculpture and animation, in real time.
I am interested in that which lays between, the area where binary codes and constructs collapse and cease to function. Gender bending and blending is in my experience the only area that truly confronts and breaks down all these codes.
I was born in Havana, Cuba, grew up in Puerto Rico and live in the US since 1978. I received a B.F.A. in Photography from the Philadelphia College of Art and an M.F.A. from The School of The Art Institute of Chicago. I am an artist who works with innovative, non-traditional photographic media, and have exhibited extensively in the United States and abroad. I am the recipient of a Cintas Fellowship; a National Endowment for the Arts award; and a Fulbright-Hays Grant, among others.
I am a visual artist and educator that has specializations in new media, photography, video, installation and performance. My artwork frequently exists as site-specific performative events and seeks to stimulate dialogue between myself, participants, and the local community. My recent work explores the influences of rapid developments in wireless information technologies on performances and understandings of identity in the context of our social/political climate of surveillance and identity authentication. I received my MFA from the California Institute of the Arts (2000). My work has been presented internationally including exhibits in the United States, Mexico, Germany, The Netherlands, Japan and Thailand.

Working on media and new media art projects by using different media like photography, video and net, including installations and conceptual works.
The focus of art work is on gender based female and socio-cultural topics. The issues of projects are about gender, role models and the gap between man and woman referring to the theory of Jacques Lacan in terms of "the Other" and the performativity of the body by Judith Butler. An important task is the female body and the outgoing connection to created symbolic meanings of gender in history and nowadays. A main emphasis is on performative works.

I am a visual artist and curator. I grew up in Germany, where I studied art at various art schools and art history at the University of Heidelberg. After I moved to NYC in 2003 I have curated several exhibitions in Germany, Spain and the USA (notably 'Skin' at the Goethe Institut in New York, the Heidelberger Kunstverein and Galeria Tribeca in Madrid, Spain; 'Out of the Box' at Elga Wimmer PCC in NYC, 'Carolee Schneemann, Early and Recent Work, A Survey' at Pierre Menard Gallery in Cambridge, MA and 'Meat After Meat Joy' at Daneyal Mahmood Gallery, NYC). I have shown my work at museums and galleries in those countries as well and edited more than a dozen books and art catalogues. Kehrer Verlag published my book 'Skin' in 2005.
Laura Splan is a New York based mixed media artist. She holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from the University of California, Irvine where she originally studied Biological Sciences. She received her Master of Fine Art in Sculpture from Mills College in Oakland, CA. Her conceptually driven work employs a variety of materials and processes that usually have a feminine sensibility about them. Unsettling scientific and medical imagery are foiled by more comfortable domestic imagery and craft processes. Likewise, the seemingly familiar and benign are subverted by the anatomical and biological. She often uses her own body in the production of materials for her work such as blood and discarded facial peel. She recently became a certified phlebotomist.
