Molly Morin is an artist working in sculpture and digital media. Prior to joining the faculty at Weber State University, she taught as adjunct faculty at Clemson University and Tri-county Technical College, as a Visiting Assistant professor at The University of Notre Dame, and as an Assistant Professor at Millsaps College in Jackson, MS. She has been awarded numerous grants and has lectured at venues including the Notre Dame Alumni Sculpture Symposium (2014)  and the Society for Literature, Science and the Arts (2013). Recently, she has been a visiting artist at Clemson University, Whittenberg University, Lamar University, and the University of Dallas. Recent solo and two person shows include Traces of Awe at Whittenberg University, Fragile Traces at The University of Dallas, Red Balloons at The Clemson Center for Visual Arts, Greenville, and Invisible Things at Whitespace Contemporary Gallery, Ogden.

Molly uses digital methods, including computer coding, 3D modeling, and digital photo-editing to produce work that explores the difficult relationship between information and meaning.  Her projects visualize data sets generated from a wide range of texts, from poetry to text messages, and reflect on the impact of communication technology on daily life. Her recent work draws on her experience as a competitive weightlifter and coach to explore issues around gender, power and agency.
