The lens serves as our eyes and our voice

Grace is a community-driven interdisciplinary artist deeply interested in the nuanced parameters that shape culture. She explores notions of space and place as well as what meaning and image-making look like in a digitized society. 

 

Working from both a personal and collective lens, she documents ephemera and investigates networks of human activity across fluid spaces, with the intention of understanding lived experiences, collective histories, and the sociocultural fabric of the post-Internet era. Her work encompasses photography, writing, new media, activism and participatory interventions.
