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 at the intersections of photography with fiber/object/craft/performance, 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.

Through processes of collecting, arranging, stitching, weaving, photographing, re-photographing, and combining, the archive is reinterpreted in mundane domestic materials, accumulations, and outdated media to draw connections between memory, ephemerality and changes in technology. In her social practice she advises as a creative consultant and strategist with a focus on inclusive and accessible interpretive collateral and expanded engagement.

During see’s residency, she created The Records Room.
