About the artist: 

Cookie Brunel uses sculpture, music, and coding to criticize implicit bias in Western epistemology. ~As an art student at AUA and UIUC Brunel researched humour and argued that jokes and laughing are meaningful bodily expressions of the unconscious. Brunel’s interest focused on instances of shapeshifting in popular comedy, particularly in cartoons and sketch comedy, which led to the creation of Rake Proofing in 2015. This series of ceramic sculptures explores how slapstick humour, rubber hose animation, and “gender bending” are culturally shared responses to unspoken un-easiness surrounding the limits of human bodies in society, space, and time. ~In 2023, Brunel continues to explore instances of shapeshifting to interrogate popular knowledge of the physical world. They are currently researching quantum phenomena at the macroscopic scale and plan to release their latest findings in the form of a computer virus.
