Gevurtz graduated from the CADRE Laboratory for New Media at San Jose State University where she received a Master of Fine Arts in digital media art. She received her bachelor’s degree in evolution, behavior and ecology biology from the University of California, San Diego. During her time at UC San Diego, she also minored in interdisciplinary computing, and the arts and studio art. Due to her interdisciplinary background, her artistic research focuses on ecological and environmental issues.
Gevurtz has shown work to a wide variety of audiences. She has been published nationally and internationally, including an article in the journal Plastik Art & Science published out of the Pantheon-Sorbonne University, “Paris 1”. In a collaborative project, Gevurtz is working with both artists and scientists to develop a project using a rig and camera, with the goal to create a series of photographs that are both data and art. This project has been presented both nationally and internationally, including at ISEA2017 in Manizales, Columbia, Balance Unbalance 2017 in Plymouth UK, and ISEA2018 in Durban, South Africa.
