Shasti @ Hallwalls Show & Tell

If you’re not familiar with the work of artist Shasti O’Leary Soudant, then you’re probably not overly familiar with the Buffalo art scene. For years, Shasti has been pushing the envelope with interactive light and colors, creating imaginative and eye-catching works of art that revolve around the forms of scientific and mathematical systems. Her works are featured at high profile locations throughout the city, including 500 Seneca (Weeping Wall) and Roswell Clinical Sciences Center (Wish Field). She also has an upcoming installation (Gut Flora) in the NFTA’s Allen/Medical Campus Station, which was commissioned by the Albright-Knox Art Gallery’s Public Art Initiative (see lead image). 

As part of the 2014 Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, she produced Performance Anxiety: Halflife, in which she, and a group of actors used invisible ink to mark the skin of attendees throughout the city of Toronto. By the end of the night, the performers had spread the “infection” to 10,000 participants.

Now, it’s your chance to hear from the artist herself, as she discusses her works, and how they relate to all of us (whether we like it or not). Her continued experiments in the public realm are fascinating, as they sometimes take on a life of their own.

Sometimes the authors at Buffalo Rising work on collaborative efforts in order to cover various events and stories. These posts can not be attributed to one single author, as it is a combined effort. Often times a formation of a post gets started by one writer and passed along to one or more writers before completion. At times there are author attributions at the end of one of these posts. Other times, “Buffalo Rising” is simply offered up as the creator of the article. In either case, the writing is original to Buffalo Rising.
