Jessica Rylan

Jessica Rylan Piper is an artist and engineer. She was a Research Affiliate at MIT’s Center for Advanced Visual Studies from 2006-2010. She has built synthesizers for playing music, and for sound installations. Between 2005 and 2007 she gave nearly 200 performances across the U.S. and Europe. Her music has been published by RRR, Weird Forrest, Important, and numerous cassette labels. Recent projects include a workshop to build circuits that make drawings, and a mise-en-abyme sculpture of the Queens Museum of Art (QMA), scaled to fit inside the model of the QMA in the museum’s panorama of New York. Measuring 40 micrometers x 100 micrometers, the sculpture is much smaller than a grain of sand.
