Kaley Flowers is a Toronto-based artist and graduate of OCAD U. Digital culture, early-2000s Web nostalgia, and niche online communities are some of the major influences in her work. This exploration of the online influences her to create an ongoing mythology of characters and “cyber artifacts”, in attempt to solidify ephemeral, fleeting concepts into tangible objects. Interested in the narratives of material, her work utilizes clay with both historical and contemporary references, creating objects that look deeper into our relationships with technology and the objects around us.

A current artist-in-residence at Harbourfront Centre in Toronto, Kaley has exhibited internationally and has been featured in Canadian Art, The Creators Project, The Globe and Mail and CBC Arts.
