From small sculptures to large scale video projection machines Kimberlee uses light, water, and movement to her create own branch of new media arte povera. She assembles mason jars filled with water to amplify imagess from small lcd screens. Her video sculptures mark digital intersections with somatic resonance, creating pathways and connections between the virtual and physical; as electricity and water seemily collide in the same conduit, expressing the complexity of beauty, anxiety, and love.

Kimberlee grew up in San Antonio,Texas. In Northern California, she has shown her work at the Zero 1 Bienniale, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Mission 17, and Sonoma State University, The Invisible Venue, and The Lab. In Europe, her work has been shown at the Biennial of Mediterranean Young Artist in Saravejo, Bosnia, Porto 2000 Capital of Culture, Cultural Center Malaposta, Gallery ZDB, and 'Rencontres Internationales Paris/Berlin.  She earned her MFA in Art from Mills College and holds an MA in Scenography from Central St. Martins College of Art & Design, London.
