Alexandra Brody, the 2020 UNF Artist in Residence, is a photography senior at UNF, with a minor in Mass Communications and Art History. In her work, Brody explores social and political topics, mixing analog and digital processes, and incorporating collage and other media to communicate her ideas. For her residency at MOCA, Brody will be developing her ongoing series “Public Domain,” documenting street artists in Florida.
Brody was drawn to street art because it is type of art that is fully accessible to the public, indiscriminately. “Street art can uncover so much about the community that it is in,” says Brody. “Each wheatpaste, tag, or graffiti is a reflective work that can reveal the traditions, religious beliefs, and social standards of the space it is in.”
