Lilli Kayes is a Transdiciplinary Media Artist and Angler based in Chicago, Illinois. She fuses technology and nature through the use of water, field collections, specimens, sound, sculpture, installation, and film. Her fishing practice is her art practice and guiding star. Ecological issues pertaining to systems of water drive the focus of her work.  Her passion stems from traditions of people with deep connections to water. She grew up swimming with Cownose Rays and learning methods of fishing, crabbing and the collection of mollusks from various family members in the Chesapeake Bay.  Her goal is to create art that generates curiosity of the natural world as well as aid the viewer to become a guardian of these fragile systems.
