Elaine Buckholtz is a light installation artist and lighting designer. She is an art professor of Interrelated Media Art at Massachusetts College of Art and Design in Boston, Massachusetts. Her recent work utilizes video and light in relation to sculptural forms, digital prints, and preexisting sites in architecture and nature under the cover of darkness. Buckholtz has a longstanding background in lighting and visual design for the stage, having worked with Terry Riley, Merce Cunningham, and Meredith Monk on international tours. A significant aspect of her visual work has involved direct experiences and immersive environments for the viewer to engage in – the materials of her work have included light, vision, and perception in relation to objects as large as cathedrals and as small as a pair of glasses. Buckholtz received 2 consecutive MFA’s from California College of the Arts and Stanford University from 2002 to 2006 with the support of The Jacob K. Javits Fellowship.  Her work was recently exhibited at The Lumiere Festival in Durham, England, Alamty Kazakhstan at the GO Viral Festival, The Art Mill, Czech Republic, at The Minnesota Street Project and Gallery 308 in San Francisco CA., The International House of Japan in Tokyo, Japan, and The Lumiere Festival in London, England. She received a Fulbright Specialist Fellowship in 2018 and the Japan Friendship Commission Fellowship for 2017. Her work is held in the collections of numerous private collectors on the east and west coasts of the US and abroad.
