Calling herself the “techno-ice-queen observer,” Anderson is one of the premiere performance artists of our time. A musician, singer, dancer, sculptor, poet, and photographer, she is one of the first artists to explore the aesthetics of technology. Recent projects include the album Bright Red, co-produced with Brian Eno, and Stories from the Nerve Bible, a retrospective book of her work.
