Amisha Gadani will show detailed illustrations of birds without beaks and perform a moth-defense inspired wearable art piece.
Amisha Gadani is an artist interested in unique animal morphologies and adaptations; from swarming behaviors and elegant defense mechanisms, to superorganisms and animals of the deep sea. Her artwork ranges from paintings and videos to kinetic sculpture and interactive wearables like her on-going series of animal-inspired defensive dresses. Amisha lives in the Bay Area and works as an Education Specialist at the Exploratorium Museum's new mini museum called Helix. Previously she worked at UCLA as the artist in resident at the Alfaro Lab and the Institute for Society and Genetics. Her work has shown in San Francisco, New York, Tokyo, and Pittsburgh and has been featured in the New York Times, Fast Company, and Scientific American. She has a B.F.A from Carnegie Mellon University. http://amishagadani.com

Amisha Gadani
Amisha Gadani's work focuses on creatures she finds curious or strange. Blowfish Dress, presented as a video, is part of an ongoing series of kinetic, wearable dresses based on animals that have interesting defense systems. For each garment she incorporates these protective mechanisms into women's evening dresses. In this case, the dress mimics the natural defense of a blowfish, which can expand in size to ward off predators. As with many of her projects, this series incorporates scientific research she conducts during residencies in biology labs. Gadani is an artist-in-residence at the University of California, Los Angeles in the Alfaro Lab and in the school's Institute for Society and Genetics lab. She previously worked for an interdisciplinary arts research lab at Carnegie Mellon University's Frank-Ratchye STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. Her work has been exhibited across the country, including at the Andy Warhol Museum, Pittsburgh, PA; the DUMBO Arts Festival, Brooklyn, NY; the Exploratorium Museum, San Francisco, CA; and Gallery Raku, Tokyo, Japan.

Amisha Gadani
Amisha Gadani is an artist interested in naturally occurring forms and systems; from sinuous curves to swarming patterns and super organisms. Her work, often drawing from curious creatures and their behaviors, attempts to instill in her viewers a portion of the wonder and awe she finds in these subjects. From her underwater video of seductively descending monsters to her flock of motorized slivers of fabric her fascination with each subject beckons viewers to share in her hand-picked wonders of the world. She is currently working on a series of "animal homunculus" drawings to visually compare differences in sensory and motor adaptations in the animal kingdom, and a fourth animal defense inspired costume to partner her blowfish, porcupine and skink dresses, this time inspired by ink-squirting cephalopods. Amisha lives in Pittsburgh where she has been working for an interdisciplinary arts research lab within Carnegie Mellon University called The STUDIO for Creative Inquiry. Previously she worked at the hands-on Exploratorium Museum of science, art, and human perception in San Francisco as an educator, exhibit support fabricator, and assistant on various projects toward the development of their "Geometry Playground" exhibition.

All the while, Miller Gallery Director Astria Suparak, and STUDIO staff Marge Myers, Jonathan Minard, and Amisha Gadani, along with some dozen work-study students, provided us near around-the-clock feedback and companionship on our "research outings."
