Joanna creates physical and virtual spaces that break down hierarchical balance between architecture and occupants. She creates objects which subvert our understanding of the object and questions our sense of interaction and relationship. Through her work, she create tangible products from the intangible qualities of perception, femininity, and existentialism. She is driven by ideas of virtuality and phenomenological reactions, mediated through tools such as rapid prototyping, open source hardware/software, and the internet. She holds an MFA degree for Media Art from University of California, Los Angeles and a Bachelor of Architecture from Pratt Institute. 

Joanna is the recipient of the 2015 TASML | Carroll / Fletcher@Eyebeam: Young Chinese Artist Talent Award.
