Reaching back to nature primordial and existing through existential transformation is the work of Michele Oka Doner. In her career of over four decades Oka Doner has taken nature at its most basic level – a stick, a twig, a palm leaf and the spiraling of galaxies – and made it the subject of her art. In her talk Oka Doner will present a selection of her public art projects, sculpture, jewelry, furniture and design objects. Oka Doner’s work is in the collections of the Metropolitan Museum of Art and Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York.
