hi, i am vidya!

summer 2023 notes ✧˚ ༘ ⋆。 ˚

I was a resident artist at the Tallgrass Artist Residency in Matfield Green, Kansas. I am working on some ideas from my time there!

I documented some notes + observations here: tallgrass field log 𓆈

(also i am in the process of sketching postcards for href.place)

My work aims to be open-ended and focused on observations of my surroundings and I often play and design with various forms of technology and art. I often learn through the process of creating art and also create art through the process of learning.

I aim to experiment with the fragments and pieces of the offline and online worlds that have influenced me. By creating, I hope to spark + explore connections between people and environment and reimagine forms of tradition and community. email me if there's anything you want to share or work on together!

VIDYA GIRI is an artist, designer, and engineer from Houston, TX. Her art is reflective of her background: balanced between cultures, environments, and disciplines. Her work has spanned between online spaces, printed media, projection, and painting on physical and digital canvases. Her (current) explorations revolve around collecting from one's surroundings as a form of reflection and the parallels between natural and human-made identities and the environments they encompass.
