Angie Waller

Jackson Heights, NY, USA

Angie Waller investigates collective longings that endure society’s technological advances. Her work combines data mining techniques and analog materials. Her research series, Unknown Unknowns (titled after a Donald Rumsfeld tautology), uses databases of web search engine traffic to uncover questions that one may have never thought to ask oneself. Included in this series is an eponymous email newsletter, a growing volume of auto-generated romance novels entitled “Love Unknown,” and text-based works on paper. Angie received her B.F.A. from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago and M.F.A. from the University of California, Los Angeles. Her work has exhibited in museums, festivals and galleries internationally.
