Krista Caballero is an interdisciplinary artist exploring issues of agency, survival, and environmental change. Moving freely between traditional and emerging media, her work explores the messy and often surprising encounters between human, ecological, and technological landscapes. In 2010 she created Mapping Meaning, an ongoing project that brings together artists, scientists, and scholars through experimental workshops, exhibitions, and transdisciplinary research.
Caballero is the Interim Director of the Center for Experimental Humanities at Bard College and currently a Smithsonian Research Associate studying the cultural implications of bird species decline. She received her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts/Tufts University.
