Artist's Talk: Anna Valentina Murch, Recent Large-Scale Public Artwork

Anna Valentina Murch is an artist who works primarily with the
medium of light and whose work focuses on creating places that
lead the viewer on a sensory and psychological journey that
measures time and provokes memory.

Since 1980, her work has been
involved with designing and building large public art projects,
sometimes working collaboratively with architects, engineers and
other artists. These large-scale public works incorporate ambient
elements such as light, water and sound, to create experiential
places. This has allowed her to take her personal creative
investigations to another level by widening the focus to explore
the definition of place and venues for community interaction.

Anna Valentina Murch received her MA in Environmental Media,
Sculpture from the Royal College of Art and a Graduate Diploma
from the Architectural Association in London, England. Through
the Computer Arts Society she exhibited an installation at the
Edinburgh Festival in 1973. In the late 1970's she moved to San
Francisco and developed many works in galleries and museums. Her
recent permanent Public Art installations include: St. Louis
Metro System, and the Muni Metro Extension, San Francisco
California, Queens Civic Court House, New York, Arroyo Suite,
Century City, Los Angles, Waterscape, Civic Center plaza in San
Jose, California, Water Scores, for the Performing Arts Center
plaza in Miami, Florida. She is currently a Professor of Art at
Mills College, Oakland, California.
