Kate Dannessa

Kate Dannessa is an artist, designer and educator based in Brooklyn, NY. Deeply engaged in experimentation, she explores nonlinear methods and their importance to the creative process. This materializes through objects, artifacts, systems and discourse, while always emphasizing empirically derived solutions. Dannessa is a designer with Altimeter Group, where she leverages artifact and narrative to explore complex problems related to nuclear nonproliferation and global security. She has worked in a variety of high-end fabrication shops—including furniture, hardware and lighting—while maintaining her own studio practice.
