Anika Todd discusses her NFT works in the “TLPS” group NFT exhibition, the failure of photogrammetry to capture the essence of a person, the beauty of coincidental time markers, and how sculpture can occupy virtual spaces.
Anika Todd (b.1992, Boston, MA) received her BFA from Massachusetts College of Art and Design, and her MFA from The University of Texas at Austin. Todd is a sculptor/media artist investigating landscape and ownership; Todd’s work functions through acts of trespass -- simultaneously enacting and challenging systems that oppress, compartmentalize, and own in order to control. She has created site-specific installations in the US and abroad. Her work has been presented in solo exhibitions at VisArts Center, Richmond, VA and Co-Lab Gallery, Austin, TX featured in the Washington Post (2018) and Glasstire (2019) respectively. She was the recipient of a City of Austin Cultural Art Council Award (2019) and the Godine Travel Award (2017). She has been selected to participate in numerous residencies including Salem Art Works (2017), Haystack School of Craft and Design (2018), and Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2019).
