Caroline Wood focuses on spaces of historical and contemporary significance in her work, creating abstraction and ambiguity from photographic and printed materials. Her work exists in the intersection of analogue and digital photographic practices and explores questions of place, history, and visual information in public spaces.
Caroline graduated from St. Olaf College in 2014 with a BA in History and Studio Art. In 2015, Caroline was selected for the Fifth-Year Emerging Artist residency at St. Olaf College, where she produced two bodies of work for exhibition. She is currently working towards her MFA in the Photography department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
Caroline is passionate about education, and has served as a teaching artist for community organizations and summer programs. She seeks to both teach and create in her art practice; focusing on how to utilize museums and other cultural institutions as educational tools as well as spaces of making.
