Aurora Robson is a multi-media artist known predominantly for her work intercepting the waste stream. Her practice is about subjugating negativity and shifting trajectories. Her work formally references recurring nightmares that she had as a child. She was born in Toronto in 1972 and grew up in Maui, HI. After over 2 decades living and working in NYC she recently moved to the Hudson Valley. Robson holds a double major (B.A.) in visual arts and art history from Columbia University.

Robson's work has been featured in Sculpture Magazine, Art in America, WIRED, Art & Antiques, the cover of Green Building + Design and other publications. She is a recipient of the Pollock Krasner Grant, a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship in Sculpture, a TED/Lincoln Re-Imagine Prize and a National Endowment for the Arts Art Work Grant

Robson is also the founding artist of Project Vortex, an international collective of artists, designers and architects who also work with plastic debris. In addition she has been working on the development of a college course called "Sculpture + Intercepting the Waste Stream" designed to foster creative stewardship at academic institutions. Her goal with the course is to encourage shifting of paradigms in art and science education while helping restrict the flow of plastic debris to our oceans. For more information see her TEDx talk entitled Trash + Love.
