Anne Morgan Spalter is an artist and author whose career reflects her long-standing goal of integrating art and technology. She creates art works that explore the concept of the “modern landscape” through both subject matter and digital processes used to create the work. Her work is included in leading contemporary collections in the US, Europe and the Middle East as well as in museums such as the Museum of the Rhode Island School of Design, the Albright-Knox (Buffalo, NY) and the Victoria & Albert Museum (London, UK).
Spalter created and taught the first fine art digital media courses at both the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD) and Brown University. Her book, The Computer in the Visual Arts, has become a standard reference text. Roger Mandle, former RISD President, described Spalter’s book as, “a seductively articulate and illuminating introduction to the rapidly expanding world of the computer and art, design, and animation...”
Spalter’s recent New York City solo show (featuring geometrically patterned video works generated from footage she shot in traffic, from aerial perches, at airports, and on the highway) received reviews in Modern Painters, ArtSlant, PostMediumCrituque, ArtDaily, the Sundance Channel and more.
Spalter was a long-time member of the Advisory Board of the Digital Art Museum (Berlin), and has also served on the editorial board of the Journal of Mathematics and Art, and the ACM SIGGRAPH Distinguished Artist Award for Lifetime Achievement in Digital Art Committee. She has a BA from Brown in Mathematics and an MFA in Painting from RISD. Spalter is also a martial artist with black belt in kenpo karate.
