Full Bio: 

Gan is a PhD student and instructor in Film & Digital Media at University of California, Santa Cruz. She is also a member of the Advisory Committee for Interdisciplinary Arts at the New York Foundation for the Arts and a research fellow of the Science & Justice Program at UCSC. Her research combines theory (feminist science studies + historical materialism) and creative practice (software + installation) as critical methodologies for visualizing time -- specifically, temporalities enacted through multispecies entanglements. This work aims to unpack interactions between dynamic more-than-human assemblages and standardized unilinear time of capitalist markets. To situate and specify these temporal encounters, research focuses on historical cultivation and engineering of different kinds of rice.

Gan studied critical art practice at the Whitney Museum Independent Study Program, and holds an MFA in Digital Arts/New Media (University of California, Santa Cruz) and a BA in Architecture (Wellesley College, MA.) Her projects have been supported by the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York Foundation for the Arts, Jerome Foundation, UC Regents, and NY Department of Cultural Affairs.
