Andrea Ray is a Part-Time Faculty member at Parsons in the AMT Fine Arts Department. Working at the intersection of pre-recorded and real-time experience, Ray creates environments with sculpture, light and architecture from which voices are deciphered. Audio narratives are commonly deployed to instill a sense of presence and absence investigating issues of ill-perceived relations and mis-diagnosed limitations between a subject and her environment. Recent work explores issues of subjectivity, agency and community through, for example, proposed forms of alternative living and utopian communities. Ray has taught new genres, sound installation, performance, core studio and thesis writing at Parsons. Ray’s work can be viewed and heard at www.andrearay.net.
