Mary Olin (Mo) Geiger is an artist. After studying to be a theatrical designer and technician, she began her career working in physically challenging settings where building environments was a gritty, communal art. Since then, she’s created interdisciplinary, collaborative artworks, designs, and research projects seen in art galleries, theaters, museums, public places, and local organizations. For her, tactile learning with and from others is a necessary method of relating. View more of her work on her website here.
Living material histories, interaction, scavenge, discard, transformation, and labor connect all of her artwork and research. She develops projects with a site- and context-specific perspective that considers active and potentially overlooked elements wherever she is. Along with creating artwork, she continues to freelance in theatrical scenic design, fabrication, scenic painting, and architectural/object conservation. She is a co-founder of the south-central Pennsylvania performance collective Valley Traction. She warmly invites correspondence via email for information on projects, commissions, or potential collaboration.
