Alexandra Cantle Projects

Graduate Public Practice

Alexandra Cantle

 
From Alexandra Cantle’s experience and understanding of people with dyslexia, she is aware of the myriad strengths and weaknesses that people with learning disabilities have. Alexandra is interested in the emotional components that come with having dyslexia, and how, without attention to one’s feelings, emotional wounds become deeply suppressed. Through guidance and reflection, individuals can become more in-touch with their emotions, thus gaining awareness of the effects learning disabilities have had on their self-esteem.
 
Alexandra’s art practice focuses on creating engagement, community, and public awareness about and among people who learn differently, through a variety of media. The points of access to her work are intended to inform the general public, as well as dyslexics, about the impacts of learning disabilities. Through community-building on a public scale she aims to bring awareness to the emotional effects of having dyslexia in our society and to re-position the overvaluing of written language-based intellect.
 
Alexandra received her bachelor’s degree in Art from the University of California, Los Angeles and recieved her Masters of Fine Art, Public Practice program in 2013 at Otis College of Art and Design.
