About Josef Kristofoletti
Through large-scale, site-specific mural paintings, Josef Kristofoletti (American, born 1980) addresses how humans interface with both the massive and the infinitesimal. In 2010, Kristofoletti completed a public mural depicting the 7000-metric ton ATLAS particle detector as an artist-in-residence at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research. A founding member of the artist collective Transit Antenna, Kristofoletti has also traveled throughout North America as part of a mobile living experiment that engaged local communities through public interventions. His work on subjects such as nature, technology, space, and architecture has appeared in several publications, including Wired, PBS News Hour, The New York Times, The Guardian, The Boston Globe, Fast Company, and Symmetry Magazine.
