lydia see is a multidisciplinary practitioner, educator, and curator of art + archives who is passionate about the uses of art for social justice + civic engagement.
Working primarily with photography and fiber at the intersection of site-specificity and duration, her practice involves material and conceptual investigation through research and collection, and is rooted in history: literal and conceptual, local and global, intimate and environmental, personal and anonymous.
Where the subtle, quiet, conceptual works made in studio meet her social and civic practice is a circular system of listening, storytelling, connecting, and engaging others, which then informs and propels her personal practice.
Recent projects include embroidered photographs, large-format photography series, installation using microfilm and microfiche, photographic and material investigations into archives + libraries, sculptural + site-specific installation, and many concurrent low-maintenance studio practice projects.
