about

Linda Alterwitz (b. 1960, Indiana) is an artist working in photography investigating the boundaries of art and science. With diverse interests in the fields of medical research and the natural environment, she finds inspiration through experimentation with various materials and processes. Motivated by cutting-edge technology, she captures data driven images derived from state-of-the-art medical diagnostic and thermal imaging. She is guided by the internal rhythms of our bodies, such as patterns of breath and signatures of thermal heat. Yet more important than producing aesthetic images derived from scientific data, Alterwitz investigates the connections that reflect a common purpose – one that integrates the authenticity of science and the communicative power of art.
In 2015, Alterwitz was the recipient of the Nevada Arts Council Visual Artist Fellowship. She has exhibited her work in both traditional exhibition and site-specific installations in the United States, United Kingdom, Japan, China, Spain, Israel, Greece and Poland. Her work has been published in Smithsonian Magazine, Orion Magazine, The New Statesman, Musee Magazine among others.

Alterwitz lives and works in Las Vegas, Nevada.
