Kendall Buster




For sculptor Kendall Buster, there is no distinction between art and science. Trained as a microbiologist, she explores the forms and landscapes seen in a microscope lens through her giant sculptures.

After studying microbiology in college, Buster worked as a lab technician in a hospital, peering through a microscope at the disks of red blood cells. And she imagined she was entering that small world.

"There's a point where you almost feel like you're in that space, particularly when you're doing a lot of work over a period of time. At least for me, you sort of lose consciousness of the apparatus… you're actually moving through a landscape."
