NICOLE TSCHAMPEL
Employing a diverse range of media including photography, installation,
performance, and video I constantly return to autobiographical stories and
emotional states filtered metaphorically through the creation of my personal
iconography for content.  Much of my work thematically stems from ongoing
fascination with elemental dichotomies: real and artificial, living and dead,
the inevitabity of change and the human urge for preservation and control.
