Art > Habitats (2004)

Kat Wilson TedTalkx

Kat Wilson, a dedicated artist, describes her approach to her nationally-recognized Habitat series (2004). Kat reveals how she formulated Habitats and is revisiting this approach for her newest series, Warrior Women. Speaker Bio CONFIRMED: Kat Wilson has come to accept that she is a medium for gathering and displaying information. She employs centuries-old compositional devices to present theatrically-conceived projects that transcend the quotidian familiarity of the personal belongings and spaces they depict, casting subjects as both intimately vulnerable, and heroic. She searches for the complexity in natural spaces, and draws forth a human element with the desire for a sound bite in time. Her greatest achievements, she says, are when her works communicate indiscriminately to the public. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
