    The work of Lisa van Casand (NL, 1990) deals with the ways in which us humans are connected, similar or inferior to other forms of (non)life in research based, scientific-poetic mixed media installations. Concerned with the way us humans are changing the composition of the atmosphere, earth surface and oceans, her work investigates how we can change our attitudes to our environment from one of exploitation to one of solidarity. By making invisible realms visible, the work questions and shifts the way we relate emotionally to other entities in our universe.
 
In 2017 she graduated from the KABK (Department of Photography) with the project The Mushroom Club. The project was rewarded the photography department prize and the Heden Start Award. She works with and for scientific/research institutes and she did an art/science honors programme at KNAW. Her work is supported by Mondriaan Fund for young talent, The Matter project for exploratory photography and Galerie Heden. The latest exhibits of her work include Yanghzou Culture Centre (CN), Stroom (NL), Designblok (PO), Stedelijk Book Club (NL), Festival van Controle (BE). After teaching at KABK, she started working as an freelance image editor at De Correspondent (Amsterdam).


Dr. Frans Snik, Astronomer, Leiden University
“To fully understand life anywhere, Lisa's interdisciplinary and artistic outlook is essential. And that view is subject to evolution as it has definitively crossed the boundaries from visible light to invisible light and the other senses as well. As an astronomer, I can and may also do the former, unfortunately not the latter. I therefore look forward to further collaborations to discover life on earth and perhaps also elsewhere.”


Dr. Hanco Zwaan, (FGA), Researcher and Head NEL, Taxonomy & systematics, Naturalis 
“In science, a multidisciplinary approach works very well to solve complex problems. […] Art and science can look at the same phenomena in radically different ways. This can lead to surprising results that give both art and science new inspiration. ”


Katerina Statholoulu, curator at MoMa, New York - obout Fluorescent Signals
“It’s a considered way of depicting that fragility – how our actions as humans can damage our environment in ways that are often invisible. Warning signs hidden and so easy to overlook [...] It’s an experimental image, borne of investigation and process, and that’s to be admired.”



Dr. Henk Jalink – Wageningen University & Research – about Fluorescent Signals
“Good art must be innovative, original and arouse astonishing in the viewer and then make people think. All of this has succeeded with this work by Lisa. […] We use her recordings as a desktop on our monitors […] and in our promotional material at trade fairs and conferences. "
