About This Artist

At, The Sun as Camera: Cyanotype Printing at Block Fest, participants harvested the sun’s rays to develop their own alternative process photographs.

 

Kristiana Chan is a first generation Malaysian-Chinese artist, writer, and educator whose work explores the intersection of ancestry, healing, and mythology. She combines traditional storytelling and art making techniques of embroidery, paper cut, and shadow puppetry with projections, alternative photo processes, and other new media. She helped curate this year’s visual arts showcase at Kearny Street Workshop’s APAture festival and is a 2019 resident at the Growlery in San Francisco. www.kristiana-chan.com

 

Anna Rotty is an interdisciplinary artist living in the Outer Sunset in San Francisco. She studied Photography at UMass Amherst and explores personal and political introspection in her work. Exploring themes of misunderstanding and distance, she is fascinated by the blurred lines that perception can create and the possibility of overcoming those boundaries to gain intimacy and connection. She has recently exhibited at Incline Gallery and UMass Amherst and was a Plus One artist in residence in the Dogpatch last year. www.annarotty.com
