Jacqueline Buttice has lived her life in the arts. Born and raised in Los Angeles, she grew up in the record business where she first started playing a Casio keyboard and later created her own electronic music band ShE~RaWk
In 2012, she started her MFA in Design and Technology at San Francisco Art Institute where she studied under Lynn Hershmann Leeson and Letiticia Sonami. During her time at SFAI she created the Genderizing Artificial Lifeforms Box or GAL Box. The GAL box is a museum of projections, a black enclosed box made from mirrored plexiglass framed in steel that shows a hologram of yourself and maps you to a highly sexualized female robot using C++ and a Microsoft Kinect.
After graduating with honors, Jacqueline relocated to Seattle where she recently cofounded the Guild of Friendly Women-- a peer-based learning group and social club for women. Members take turns hosting events in the theme and location of their choosing in order to share specialized skills and information with other members of the fairer gender. She is also working as a freelance photographer for Newsweek and pursuing her teaching career.
