Raya Ward (b. 1998, Atlanta, GA) is an artist and designer whose work spans physical, digital, and social space. Through collage, installation, and digital design, her work hosts stories that explore concepts around technology, futures, family, and grief. She generally prefers to be in the water than on land.
Jessica Zhou (she/they, b. 1998, Los Angeles, CA) is a writer, artist, and researcher, living in San Francisco. Her work has been exhibited by the Asian Art Museum, Gray Area, and Southern Exposure; published by Kearny Street Workshop, Inverse Magazine, and the Los Angeles Times; circulated within a networked self, composed of a hydra of Twitter and Tumblr accounts. She ponders poetechnics, care and maintenance work, digitally diasporic methods of cultural disarrangement, our cyborgnesses, SEO divination, and the ways we find one another and then make worlds together, on-and-offline.
