 About the artists

Sanaz Mazinani is a San Francisco-based artist. She works primarily in photography, video and large-scale installations. Her practice explores the relationship between perception and representation, responding to site, sight and insight, especially in relation to digital culture. She has received awards and honors from the Canada Council for the Arts, D.C. Commission for the Arts and Humanities, Kala Art Institute, Magic of Persia Contemporary Art Prize, Stanford University and San Francisco Arts Commission.

 Bobbi Jene Smith has danced with the Batsheva Dance Company based in Tel Aviv, Israel since 2006, and is authorized by Ohad Naharin to teach his Gaga movement language and set his choreography. Her early dance training took place at the Royal Winnipeg Ballet School, North Carolina School of the Arts and The Juilliard School, under the direction of Lawrence Rhodes.
