Danielle Degon is a project-based artist and a curator at AUTOMAT Collective in Philadelphia.
Her work explores the effects of productivity on human psychology, biography, sociality, and the art-making process. Often appropriating tools of industrialization such as mold-making and repetitive fabrication, she reveals the contradictions of ceaseless extraction, production, and profit.
