Marilyn Waligore, Professor, Aesthetic Studies / Photography at the University of Texas at Dallas uses digital media to investigate the everyday. She challenges notions of how we determine concepts of productivity and value, in regards to limited resources, which demands an upending of the preference for the new, and the need to generate an awareness of the potential for reuse. Applying digital technology, she embraces process and materiality to underscore the physical nature of things that exist in a transitory state, in order to elevate and to impart value.

Marilyn Waligore received an MFA degree from the University of Wisconsin--Madison and undergraduate degrees in Art and in English from the University of California--Berkeley.

She is a recipient of grants and awards, including an Artist Fellowship in Visual Arts from the Ohio Arts Council, the Arts Midwest/ National Endowment of the Arts Regional Visual Arts Fellowship in Photography, and the Moss/Chumley North Texas Artist Award in Photography and New Genres.

Her articles on digital photography have appeared in Leonardo and Photography Quarterly, and she has curated numerous exhibitions of photography and digital media. Her photographs and online media projects have been exhibited widely, including the City University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Polytechnic University, Circulo de Bellas Artes, Madrid, Spain, the Triennale di Milano, Milan, Italy, Malmö Konsthall, Malmö, Sweden, National Gallery, Bangkok, Thailand, SIGGRAPH, Los Angeles, California, the New York Digital Salon, School of Visual Arts, NYC, Center for Photography at Woodstock, New York, the Silver Eye Center for Photography, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, the Houston Center for Photography, Houston, Texas, the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, Los Angeles, California, the Dayton Art Institute, Dayton, Ohio, A.R.C, Artists/Residents of Chicago, Illinois, and in Austin, Texas at the Laguna Gloria Art Museum, Women & Their Work, and in the Texas Biennial, Mexican American Cultural Center.
