Lyndsey Walsh is an American Artist, Designer, Researcher, and Writer based in Berlin, DE. Her practice primarily deals with new media as well as living and biological materials, and she implements many processes of artistic inquiry into hands-on laboratory experiments. Her work often places a critical lens on the politics and ethics of working with living materials and non-human and human “bodies”, as well as the knowledge systems that are built from them.
Walsh received a Bachelor’s in Individualized Studies from the Gallatin School of Individualized Studies at New York University in 2016. In 2018, she was awarded a Masters of Biological Arts with Distinction for her research and dissertation at SymbioticA the Center of Excellence in Biological Arts at the University of Western Australia. Walsh has conducted artistic and design-based research in scientific laboratories around the world and has exhibited in Australia, United States, and Germany. She is currently a visiting scholar in the Hegemann research group at Humboldt Universtat zu Berlin’s Department of Experimental Biophysics and is supported by UniSysCat Cluster of Excellence. She is also an Art Writer for Unbore Collective, a BioArt collective based in the Netherlands.
