cichon_dottiDotti Cichon has been a photographer, artist, and world traveler from a very young age. With a background in the Sciences as well as the Arts, a degree in Psychology and Graduate School in Architecture at UC Berkeley, she is fascinated by the brain, the mind and man’s place in the infinite time and space of the Cosmos. This informs her artwork and manifests itself in unique, thought-provoking, innovative imagery in photography, video installation, artist’s books and the other diverse media in which she works.

Her photographic work is an exploration of the medium of photography itself, and no matter what form it takes, her photographs and videos transform into very special images that touch the human psyche and evoke emotional response. Much of her work is environmentally or scientifically based and meant to elicit thinking about environmental issues of global importance.

Her work has been exhibited throughout the United States, Canada, England, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. Her work is in public, private, and corporate collections throughout the world. Her video work, some in collaboration with Anitta Toivio of Finland, has been presented in Finland, Venice Italy, Spain and the USA in Arizona, California and New York including at the New York Museum of Modern Art (MoMA).
