Kristin Reeves (b. 1976, Muncie, USA) uses time-based media and performance to model injury and resilience for vulnerable and sensuous bodies. Clinical imagery and institutional subject matter are personal to her because she was photographed for medical research as a child. She discovered that this pediatric research contributed to the loosening of bioethical standards in the United States which had be set in place after World War II to protect vulnerable subjects. Now she conducts her own experimental research on her media bodies. She earned her BFA at Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana and her MFA at the University of Florida, Gainesville, Florida. Her media art work has been exhibited at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, European Media Arts Festival, The Centro Cultural de España CDMX, San Francisco Cinematheque's CROSSROADS, The Block Museum, Ann Arbor Film Festival, The Chicago Underground Film Festival, Impakt Festival, Antimatter [Media Art] Festival, Steppenwolf Theater, and Granoff Center for the Creative Arts at Brown University. She returned to Muncie, Indiana as an Assistant Professor of Intermedia Art at Ball State University.
