Brittney Hofer is a third-year MFA candidate in Sculpture and Post Studio Practices. Her multidisciplinary applications create a connection between music-making and land use, emphasizing the way we navigate through the landscape as well as the soundscape with demarcated lines and borders that define ownership and theory.
Hofer uses the body as an instrument or tool of research, to gain insights into our sensory capabilities and the role they play in the understanding of self. By utilizing agrarian forms of communication and the performative act of music-making, she explores the ways we communicate with one another through visual reactions, physical reciprocity, and audible instigations.
Hofer was born and raised in Harlem, Montana. Living in the northeastern plains, her father farms and ranches the land, providing a strong sense of engagement with the natural environment in the western landscape.
