Miki Yamada Foster’s current work weaves audio and video narratives through craftwork and new/old networks of public display. She is the creator of Feminist Craft Corner and the producer/director of the public/web access television show, Jerkwaterburg. She completed her MFA in Digital Art/New Media at the University of California Santa Cruz in 2009. The Feminist Craft Corner project was exhibited at the Museum of Art and History in Santa Cruz in the Spring of 2009 and as part of the Invisible Ingredient show at Oakland’s Rock Paper Scissors Gallery in July of 2009. Her work will also be featured as part of Lineage at the GLBT Archives in San Francisco in the Fall of 2009 as well as at the Collaboration Festival at the University of Santa Cruz in October of 2009. She is part of the art collective, the Future Clothes Tailoring and Detective Agency. She produces video installation and electronic clothing sculptures that serve as a means for investigating movement, memory and time. Yamada Foster work explores the intersections between gender, race and technology. She constructs fantastical worlds and produces them out of queer and feminist discourse as a way of investigating the uncomfortable negotiation between objects and bodies
