ABOUT

Julia Chamberlain is a multimedia artist who explores ideas surrounding touch, human computer interaction, and light in her work. She is interested in the physical qualities of light through glass and the interaction between humans, technological artifacts, and society.

Chamberlain received her BFA from the University of Washington in 2015. In 2014, she won the Outstanding Student in Contemporary Sculpture Award from the International Sculpture Center. Her work has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, New Glass Review, and Columns Magazine, shown locally at King Street Station and The Factory, and shown internationally at S12 Gallery in Bergen, Norway.
