About
Yael Kanarek  has developed a unique vocabulary of networked interfaces using photography, text, sculpture, and performance. For the past decade she has integrated a range of media into a visual system with epic proportions titled World of Awe (worldofawe.net). Grounded with an original narrative that expands the ancient genre of a traveler’s tale, Kanarek’s World of Awe explores connections between storytelling, travel, memory, and technology. In recent years, she has been focusing on properties of languages, mainly geopolitical and spiritual to learn connectedness and separateness among people.
Kanarek has been recognized internationally with a Rockefeller New Media fellowship, the Netizens Webprize, and the CNRS/UNESCO Lewis Carroll Prix Argos in France. Selected for the 2002 Whitney Biennial, she has received grants from the Jerome Foundation Media Arts, New York Foundation for the Arts, and commissions from the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, Turbulence.org, and The Alternative Museum. Kanarek has also held residencies at Eyebeam and Harvestworks. Her work has been written about in The New York Times, Tema Celeste, ARTnews, and Flash Art Italy to name a few. In 2000, Kanarek founded Upgrade!, an international network of artists and curators, now preparing for the fourth international festival in Sao Paulo.
