Episode Info:

Kayti Didriksen is a multidisciplinary artist focused on capturing movement and sound with line and color. Didriksen uses blind contour drawing, a fundamental hand eye coordination technique of learning to draw what you see to record the ephemeral traces of movement during live music and performances. In the next step of her process, she overlaps the drawings creating a matrix for larger scale work that represents space and movement with color and generates the feeling of the performance in the viewer. She also draws as a performance, engaging guests at events with quick and quirky lines while speaking about what happens to the brain during this process. Didriksen has collaborated with organizations throughout the US and abroad including Faberge’, TEDx, The Joan Mitchell Foundation, NYU, Brooklyn Museum, and the Jazz Foundation of America as well as countless bands and musicians. Her work has been featured in the Washington Post, NY Times, CNN and the BBC. She served as the Artist in Residence for the Brooklyn Symphony Orchestra from 2013 to 2017. In addition to her more line-driven works, Didriksen enjoys painting landscapes in plein air with a palette knife while traveling. Currently, Didriksen lives in Washington, D.C., and is the Artist in Residence for Long and Foster Capital Region.
