People / Randy Lee Cutler

Randy Lee Cutler is a Vancouver based writer, artist and educator. She is an Associate Professor at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in the Faculty of Visual Art and Material Practice. In addition to performance and video work, she contributes essays to catalogues and magazines while maintaining an experimental relationship to pedagogy, gardening and embodiment. Through the intersections of gender, art, science, and technology Cutler investigates the emergence of new cultural forms and expression.
Cutler understands research as collaborative, exploratory and politically engaged with local experience. She was recently awarded a Vancouver Innovation Grant for a multiplatform project called SaltWalks: Three Movements where she explores the enduring relationship that civilizations have had with salt from its importance in food preservation and healing to more aesthetic and philosophical implications. This award allowed Cutler to work collaboratively with Access Gallery, shopkeepers in Vancouver’s Chinatown and the projects participants to produce a series of walks as well as a video documenting the research and its events.
