VoyageHouston features CVAD's Liss LaFleur
Dec. 3, 2019—VoyageHouston, an online platform that fosters collaboration and support for small businesses, features Liss LaFleur, CVAD assistant professor.
"I am an interdisciplinary artist, activist, and educator working with video, new media, and performance. Through the merging of digital and physical space, I explore contemporary queer identity, the future of feminism, and historical narratives. I am perhaps best known for my large, colorful, immersive installations that integrate remix, durational repetition, and the slowing of time. Currently, I’m working on a new large-scale video installation for an upcoming exhibition this spring at the Contemporary Art Museum of Houston.
"Central to my practice is an investigation of glass, a material that I explore conceptually, physically, and digitally, to reference the body in flux. In 2018, I was awarded an Immersive Scholar Grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to start a new project titled “Coded Glass.” Through this ongoing work, I am exploring methods of creating 3D modeled stained glass windows to reflect on the #metoo movement in the United States."
