Rebecca Forstater was born and raised in Washington, D.C., where she got her first email address in 1994, and spent most of the early 2000’s crafting away messages for AIM. She has exhibited her work internationally at CLAY Keramikmuseum Denmark, Botschaft Berlin, Germany, Petersburg Art Space, Berlin, Germany, and in 2017 received an Artist-in-Residency Fellowship where she received a studio at the Axel Haubrok Fahrbereitschaft Collection. Forstater will receive her MFA in Studio Arts from Syracuse University’s School of Visual and Performing arts in spring 2019. Forstater’s work focuses on the liminal states of truth in the screen experience and how this mediates our perceptions of reality, working across various digital mediums, sculpture, and performance.
