Isabella Colaianni explores the sense of distance from one's own mind and body during transformation in her first solo exhibition, asleep and awake. The installation is a reactionary body of work to a time of transition in life. People can often experience dissociation within themselves during such a period of great change.
Isabella Colaianni studied Interior Design and Interior Architecture at Arizona State University, which lead her to the visual team at Anthropologie in Tucson, Arizona. Colaianni became more interested in 3 Dimensional art as she found ways to incorporate her love for sewing, construction, and design within form as she honed her skills creating window and in store displays for the company. She is currently engaged in these practices at the University of Arizona with an anticipated Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in extended media, spring of 2016.
