Alyssa Taylor Wendt works as a multimedia artist in Austin, Texas. After earning a BA degree with an emphasis in photography from NYU, she moved to the West coast and performed on records, in many awarded independent films, on stage and with collaborative art projects. Wendt received an MFA degree from the International Center of Photography and Bard College. From 2008 to the present, Wendt has performed at the Numu Art Space, Location One, St. Cecilia’s, envoy gallery, Colab Projects, the Fusebox Festival in Austin and The Museum of Art and Design in New York City. Wendt’s current projects involve developing the ability to translate the visceral sense of her inner self into objects, photographic evidence and the moving image. The installation work revolves around this animism: non-linear videos with layered sound shown with assemblage sculpture, large format production stills and participatory performances that have a transformative social aspect.
