Lynn Cazabon is an artist who utilizes photography, web and mobile device platforms, video, and installation. Her work seeks to understand the nature of human progress by looking at what is left behind in its wake. Recent work examines wild plants within the urban environment as a means to reveal the unintended consequences of human activity upon the land. Other recent work centers upon obsolescence via technological devices and artifacts.

Cazabon's work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in museums and galleries for the past 20 years, including solo and group exhibitions at the Spagnuolo Gallery at Georgetown University (Washington, DC), ISEA2012 at 516Arts (Albuquerque, NM), ZERO1 Biennial (San Jose, CA), The Atlanta Contemporary Art Center (Atlanta, GA), The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum (Ridgefield, CT), Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center (Buffalo, NY), Schroeder Romero Gallery (NYC), Artists Space (NYC), Vox Gallerie (Montreal, Canada) and The Mattress Factory (Pittsburgh, PA).
