Artist Statement
I explore life at all levels of living systems — organisms, social systems, and ecosystems — to examine and promote our interdependence. Under closer scrutiny, neural-like nodes of connectivity reveal themselves as even smaller networks. By visually revealing structural patterns and characteristics within cross-disciplinary and embedded networks, the blending of distinct social, biological, and technological systems form one integrated whole — the Earth. My work has evolved from comparing networks (molecular systems, social networks, neural pathways, freeways systems) to deep analyses of their interactions. How does connectivity, for better or for worse, influence our lives and our future?

Richelle Gribble is a multidisciplinary artist exploring planetary connectivity. Her work examines networks and systems-based investigations to reflect the ways human impact, technology, and environment interact and evolve. She has had solo shows in Los Angeles, New York, Japan, and international orbit around Earth etched on satellites and aboard rockets. Work presented in a TEDxTrousdale talk “What is our Role within a Networked Society?” and published in The Creator’s Project, The Atlantic, Artillery, Hyperallergic and VICE.
