Brittany Nelson uses photographic chemistry to critique material based photo practices and collapse photographic traditions. She earned her BA at Montana State University and MFA at Cranbrook Academy of Art. Nelson was awarded the Fish/Pearce Award for Excellence in Process Based Work from the Print Center (Philadelphia, PA), a Theo Westenberger Foundation Grant, and in 2015 a Creative Capital Grant for her work on this innovative project. She has been commissioned by the Cranbrook Science Museum and is in the permanent collections of the Cranbrook Art Museum and the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts.
In our dynamic world, art reflects conditional reality, and design contributes to further development of global societies. At Parsons School of Design, rigorous practice and critical scholarship prepares students to become leading agents of commentary and change.
