Lomask sees the world as an amalgam of seemingly contradictory, yet synergistic perspectives. The daughter of a biomedical research engineer and a visual artist, Lomask spent her childhood going to laboratories and gallery openings. She weaves these two worlds into the tapestry of her work, creating highly visual, biological images and rhythms.
Upon founding Capacitor in 1997, Jodi Lomask began exploring non-traditional combinations of arts and sciences through movement. Under her artistic direction, Capacitor created works that tackle the past and future of reproduction (futurespecies 2000), Earth's duet with the Universe (Within Outer Spaces 2001), the heroism and fantasy of video gaming (Avatars 2002), the visible and invisible layers of the Earth (Digging in the Dark 2004), symbiotic relationships in the forest (biome 2007), the beauty and sexuality of flowers (The Perfect Flower 2009), and the ocean's vital forces (Okeanos 2012).
