You use a glass mirror to see your face.
You use art to see your soul.

Kate Raudenbush is a New York-based, Burning Man-bred artist who resonates deeply with environmental issues and our evolving humanity. Kate is a creator of large immersive & allegorical sculpture works that catalyze social engagement, while exploring themes that range from technological sustainability, to creation myth, and from self-empowerment to environmental awareness. 

She synthesizes materials such as structural steel, wood, mirror and L.E.D. light programing to construct her concepts that are developed through  3D rendering software, mechanical engineering, interactive programming. She then utilizes industrial machining, welding, laser-cutting, rigging and cranes to construct her sculptures, stages and bring her ritual spaces to life.

As a self-taught sculpture artist, the power of her work lies in its ability to raise awareness of important social and environmental concerns without compromising beauty and aesthetics, often creating a feeling of sacred space and other-worldliness. Kate’s work and words have been published, commissioned and collected in art museums from Seoul to Reno, in international art fairs from Miami to the Hamptons, and in festivals from Amsterdam to Las Vegas, Santiago, San Fransisco, New York City, and in the creative vanguard of many epic, fiery gatherings at Burning Man.
