Clara Allison is a sound artist interested in intimacy and distance. She uses sound, light, and vibration to build immersive spaces / moments that emphasize connection. In her perpetually morphing practice, she returns continually to themes of ecology, queerness, and the space-body relationship, realizing interactive installations and spatialized compositions. Her most recent works have emerged from her time in Greenland as an NSF funded artist fellow for the Institute for Arctic studies. She holds a BA from Bard College in Electronic Music/Sound and Literature, an MA from Dartmouth in Digital Musics, and will be pursuing her PhD in Composition at Stanford in the fall of 2020.
