Ilona Gaynor



(Born, Solihull, England; lives/works in New York City) she an interdisciplinary artist, writer and designer interested in examining structures of law, commerce, politics and representation with fiction. She is both deliberately an artist and designer whose work shapeshifts in a constant search for ways to inhabit and expand existing languages, forms and contexts. As a research based artist her work combines a range of references and forms including bookmaking, diagrams, objects, installations, photography, films, plays, documents, text and found images and material. Recurring themes are visualising economic and legal structures, power, events, architectural spaces and processes of documentation and order across a range of contexts. 

Her work has been exhibited, screened, published and disseminated internationally. She received her MA(RCA) in Design Interactions from the Royal College of Art, and is currently a Professor of Design at the University of Buffalo.
