Lisa Korpos (she/they) is a Portland-based interdisciplinary artist who investigates non-human perception, embodiment, and the aesthetics of vulnerability. Their research-based art practice is rooted in the cognitive and ecological sciences, with projects taking form as interactive installation, multisensory sculpture, video, creative writing, and drawing. Collaborating with human and non-human bodies is an integral part of their process, with creatures as varied as bees, dogs, laboratory rats, research scientists, and bottlenose dolphins acting as subjects, co-creators, and participants within their work.

 Korpos holds a Master of Fine Arts degree from the Department of Visual Arts at UC San Diego, along with baccalaureate degrees in Studio Art and Cognitive Science from the same institution. Her works have been shown internationally in exhibitions at Parallax Projects (2023), Ars Electronica Festival (Austria, 2022), Arts Santa Monica (Barcelona, 2022), Michigan State University Museum's Creative CoLab (2022), Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego (2019), Other Places Art Fair (2021), the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology Gallery (2017), and the Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. She is the recipient of multiple grants and fellowships, including a Culture & Animals Foundation Grant and Oregon Regional Arts & Culture Council Grant.
