Welcome to the website of Kayleigh C. Perkov, PhD
I recently received my PhD from the Department of Visual Studies at the University of California, Irvine, where I studied contemporary art through the lens of design, technology, and feminist inquiry.
My dissertation “Giving Form to Feedback: Craft and Technology circa 1968-1974” historicizes current movements in digital fabrication by examining studio craft objects that synthesize handmaking and emergent technology.
My dissertation has been generously supported by a predoctoral fellowship at the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the Center for Craft, Creativity & Design, and the Newkirk Center for Science and Society.
