Tammy Renée Brackett is a new media artist whose work questions how the manipulations of science and mass media come to define human epistemology on both the individual and collective scale. She continuously explores the blurry ethics of a frenetic acceleration in acquiring scientific knowledge.
Brackett has an MFA in Electronic Integrated Art from the School of Art and Design at Alfred University and has exhibited work in China, Japan, Croatia, Hungary, and the United States. She is a recipient of the College Art Association Professional Development Fellowship for Visual Artists, funded by the NEA. Her work has been included in the Albright Knox’s biennial exhibition, Beyond/In Western NY in 2005 and 2007, IDEAS2009 exhibition at the Ball State Museum of Art, and The Other New York: 2012, a multi-venue biennial in Syracuse, NY. Her most recent work was exhibited in a solo show titled Deer Dear at SUArt Galleries in Syracuse NY.
Brackett is currently Associate Professor and Chair of Digital Media and Animation at Alfred State College, Alfred NY.
