Anne Troutman is an artist and architect. She taught innovative design studios at SCI-Arc for many years, and installation and performance as Environmental Art Chair at Santa Monica College of Design, Art & Architecture.
Troutman’s photo-based work evokes the constructed nature of perception and the immersive physicality of visual experience. By physically unstitching, re-assembling, layering, and shaping fragments of photographs, she explores the photograph itself as landscape and topography.
