Riley Cox is a multidisciplinary artist from North Carolina, currently living in Baltimore, Maryland. Her work uses digital weaving, laser cutting, circuitry and biology. She utilizes the language of mechanical production and lab based processes while maintaining a tenderness and sense of care that is associated with handcraft. Her process is an act of collaboration, combining their own hand, aesthetic sensibilities and instincts with the machines and organisms she work with. Riley explores the relationship between technology and ecology by abstracting references to nature through digital processes, asking what it means to view nature through the lens of computational systems. Her work brings to life speculative applications of new technology and invites critical discussions, examining boundaries between textile historical references, tactile craft objects, and abstract concepts in biotechnology.
