Saya Woolfalk (Japan) is a New York-based artist who uses science fiction and fantasy to reimagine the world in multiple dimensions. With the multiyear projects No PlaceThe Empathics, and ChimaTEK, Woolfalk has created the world of the Empathics, a fictional race of women who are able to alter their genetic makeup and fuse with plants. With each body of work, Woolfalk continues to build the narrative of these women’s lives, and questions the utopian possibilities of cultural hybridity.
