Kistler records fleeting impressions created by urban spaces, flora and fauna. In doing so she calls attention to the ubiquity of urban landscapes and the absence of biodiversity within them. Her subject matter is broad, ranging from fungi, to audio recordings of birds, to green-space maps from her own neighborhood. She uses her findings to create sculptural forms and photographic images that, while static themselves, are suggestive of the constantly changing world they come from.

Kistler lives and works in Gahanna, Ohio. She is an interdisciplinary artist working primarily in sculpture and photography while using a variety of media—laser cut rubber, cnc router-cut plastic, and 3D printed plastic. She has shown work nationally and internationally and has been commissioned by the Lincoln Motor Company, the Dayton Metropolitan Library, and the city of Columbus to create permanent works of sculpture.
