MFA to GSU: Katherine Cunningham

Faculty Work Then & Now

GSU Photo faculty member Katherine Cunningham has been exploring the intersections of art, science, and the spiritual through her work for more than a decade. Her thoroughly researched projects trace a recurring human desire, almost a need, for simple explanations of complex phenomena. Often these answers are sought through the lens of science, which purports to be rational, or spirituality, which attempts to harness the irrational. Myriad cultures and communities have declared their identities through a shared search for meaning that, inevitably, transforms into belief that they have found conclusive answers. Cunningham investigates these groups with an interest in how they create a lifestyle from these identities, and how they turn their answers into actions.
