Catherine is a Chinese-Filipina artist, designer, writer, and public speaker whose work explores emerging technologies and alternative futures through interactive storytelling, sensory experiences, and participatory art. She first arrived in New York City to study science, but after a re-evaluation (and a trip to Barcelona, Spain) she returned to study interaction design.
Catherine describes how tough it can be to settle in to a new degree program abroad, and the cultural, academic, and professional differences she has dealt with since coming to America.
I had no one to answer to but myself and so many possibilities opened up to me that I began to question myself."
Catherine also explains how much she treasures the chances that her art residencies provide her, allowing her to meet and create with local artist in communities all around the world.
