A Minnesota native, Khanh Xiu Tran (b. 1982) currently lives and works in Ridgewood, Queens. Her work, partly influenced by her upbringing as the daughter of a computer scientist and a software engineer, is often research-based and employs found images and text, photography, video, and sound to explore ideas about ambiguous realities and the nature of transformation in this era. Since receiving her MFA from the School of Visual Arts for Photo, Video, and Related Media, she has been featured in Conveyor Magazine (The Alchemy Issue), exhibited in Vietnam and New York, and has focused on self-published books.
