    Member presenters


    Roberta Trentin is a Brooklyn based multidisciplinary artist who works in collaboration with the materials and the unknown outcomes. Her work explores overlooked stories of fungi, microorganisms, and plants in the more-than-human world. A background in science and a love of the earth result in an interweaving of macro/micro observations and deeply personal stories in her work. She received her Master’s Degree in Agriculture Science and Technology from the university of Florence, Italy before moving to New York City to study Photography in the General Studies program at the International Center of Photography. Trentin earned her MFA in Interdisciplinary Art from the NOMAD program at University of Hartford. Her work was feature in Abundance Of Life, Bio Art Seoul group exhibition at Gwacheon National Science Museum, Seoul, South Korea; on the an/aesthetics, group show at Rosekill Farm, Rosendale NY and in the MYCRO Mag, an NYU student-run interdisciplinary print and online publication. www.robertatrentin.com

Her current practice is site-specific, located within Konza Prairie Biological Station.

    Mia Mulvey explores the recording of time, climate change and our relationship to remote landscapes through such forms as ancient trees, ice and geology. Through field research in locations such as Scandinavia, the Western US and the Arctic Circle, she is interested in information bound in the land through layers and forms. In an effort to honor the “ground truth” of specific locations, her process involves utilizing technology to sculpturally record and investigate the environment. Mulvey received her M.F.A from Cranbrook Academy of Art and her B.F.A from Arizona State University. Her work has shown in numerous galleries and venues such as the Denver Art Museum, American Museum of Ceramic Art, ASU Ceramic Research Center,  Kohler Art Center and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art. She has received numerous grants and residencies at the Montello Foundation, Kohler Arts in Industry, Guldagergaard International Ceramic Research Center and The Arctic Circle. www.miamulveystudio.com
