Dakotah Konicek

I am a visual artist raised in Lander, Wyoming. In 2004 I joined the US Air Force and ventured to Texas, Mississippi, Alaska, Japan, and North Carolina. After leaving the Air Force I returned home and received a BFA from the University of Wyoming in Laramie in 2012. I am a recent graduate of the MFA program at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. My work examines the intersection between nature/man/machine. Tensions between nature and technology become the focus to reposition our relationship with them. I choose salvaged materials based on the practical application of their newly assigned function along with a playful exploitation of form.
