Hayden Dunham's interdisciplinary work consists of sprawling assemblages as well as their terrestrial and synthetic byproducts. She creates systems that track and contain energy as it is transferred through various material states, including fluoride silica and volcanic ash. Dunham’s sculptures are also physical ecosystems that both embrace and neutralize environmental toxicity.
Hayden Dunham was born in 1988 in Austin, TX.
Solo exhibitions of Dunham’s work include: Burns Blue at Company in New York City; Inside Darkness There Are No Lines at the Times Square Space in New York City; and HA:no name no side:TH at Artspace in Sydney, Australia.
