Narrative is key to accessing Kristi Rae Wilson’s multimedia wearable and installation-based works. Her goal as a storyteller and arranger of objects is to allow the viewer to have a transformative experience through imagination by interacting with the specific object she has altered. The role of the body is critical in her work. Physical interaction with her altered materials allows the viewer to understand and absorb her intent.

Wilson received a MFA in Jewelry/Metals from the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, where she was the recipient of the Creative and Performing Arts Fellowship and the Brodie Material Grant. Her work has been included in international and national publications and exhibited throughout the United States. The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) awarded her the Educational Endowment Scholarship to participate in the Jewelry Opere Workshop (Netherlands), where she studied with contemporary jeweler, Ruudt Peters.
