Kimberly Baker is an interdisciplinary artist who practices a/r/tography, which is a research methodology, a creative practice and a performative pedagogy that explores the relationships of the in-between. Kimberly investigates themes of humanity and the environment. During her research process she discovers the interlocking relationships that occur between these convergences. Kimberly reflects upon these meanings and then transforms them into visual understandings. Her aim is to communicate with the viewer, whereby she asks them to reflect upon contemporary issues that impact them in the everyday and have a cumulative force on our collective future.
Current A/R/Tography Project: Places In Between:
Explores the discourse that occurs when the environment is threatened by economic development proposals. Kimberly is investigating the contested spaces of the Delta Port Expansion, oil tankers on the Salish Sea and the Northern Gateway Project through photo documentation, creating artwork and writing reflective articles about the impacts and consequences of these convergences.
