Miranda McFarland

Major: Fine Arts – Interdisciplinary Arts

Class of 2017

Why do we need art? For me this will always be the mystery I crave to understand.
Recently my art has been focusing on my body's relationship to my environment. I came up with the idea to dive into the lake, hold my breath, and scratch circular gestures into a copper plate that I take to the studio and make prints. It is these mark makings that become artifacts of my body. I love being an artist.
