About

Shirley Shor (Born 1971, Israel)

Part of an emerging generation of new media artists, Shirley Shor employs technological processes in the service of larger issues related to human experience and fine art. Shor creates real-time computer generated installations, and environments that alter our experience of concepts such as conflict, language, and the passage of time. Shor’s work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, and is part of many private and public collections in the US and abroad. Born 1971, Israel. Lives and works in New York City.
