Karen Eng is a writer and multidisciplinary artist transplanted from the West Coast of California to the Norfolk coast of England. Her visual work straddles analog and digital media – from traditional letterpress printing to still and moving lens-based images and large-scale animated projections on medieval buildings. A longtime participant in multiuser digital worlds, she’s currently exploring the possibilities of VR and cryptoart as tools of expression. She’s a founding member of the 105collective, a group of UK-based artists bringing a diversity of voices to the cryptoart space. More at karenfranceseng.com / Twitt
