Dorsey Kaufmann is an artist living in Tucson, Arizona.

Dorsey Bromwell Kaufmann actively challenges interdisciplinary boundaries by investigating the parallels and intersections between art, science, and policy. She has danced her entire life and regularly employs choreography in her work through time-based media, such as video, animation, and live 3-D installations.

Her art reflects on the body in motion, the multiple perspectives surrounding the body that mark it meaning, the language that dictates where bodies travel, as well as the connection to the land where this relationship is activated. By combining choreographed objects and performers, she considers the design and sequencing of movement as it relates to daily life. Reflecting on the minutiae of how we choreograph our society, her work calls into question the limits and freedoms we assign to movement.

Dorsey has received numerous awards for her artwork, including the University of Arizona School of Art’s Marcia Grand Centennial Sculpture Award, the UA College of Fine Art’s Medici Scholar Award, and the French National Center’s Interdisciplinary and Global Environmental Studies Student Award. She has presented her work at Biosphere 2, Tucson Museum of Contemporary Art, Arts in the Public Sphere National Conference in Boston, MA, and Arts Environments National Conference in Athens, GA, for the College Art Association in New York and Los Angeles, and has published in the International Journal of Science Education and the Journal of Risk Research.

She is an MFA candidate in Illustration and Design at the School of Art at the University of Arizona and works in Dr. Ramírez-Andreotta’s Integrated Environmental Science and Health Risk Laboratory as an Information Designer.
