Hi, this page belongs to Arina Sin, whose pronouns are she/they.

She is an interdisciplinary designer and artist whose work centres around using communication, art praxis, and visual language to spark conversations about the histories we inherit and the speculative futures we want to manifest. Particularly from the experience of a cis-gendered, diasporic South-east Asian female born to Cambodian refugees, and living in the unceded territories of the Musqueam, Squamish, and Tsleil-Waututh territory peoples. While she designs for others and lends her skills to uplift their voices, she is careful in navigating the spaces she is invited into, and aims to chose work that contributes to the social good of the community, arts, and culture.

She is interested in visual archives, low-fidelity, digital mediums of reproduction and what it means for us as we communicate through technology-mediated interfaces. She also has a deep appreciation for analog processes which constructs this constant split between digital and physical materiality, and production, always present in her work. Nevertheless, she is working on being more tactile, and hands-on with making and craft skills.

Arina values playful, satirical approaches as a method to reveal ways the everyday is taken for granted. In her own artistic practice, she works with the self, ritual, and performance in the photographic medium.
