Grad Night: Natcha Wongchanglaw, Megan Hansen, and Amanda Quinlan
Natcha Wongchanglaw shares stories of the Couchsurfing community in New York City and the surrounding vicinity, a group of people who open up their homes to travelers to learn and exchange cultures in return. Megan Hansen's work attempts to understand the American West through myth, ideology, and pop culture. Amanda Quinlan's practice exists at the intersection of photography with artificial intelligence, architecture, and shared nostalgia. She employs lens-based photography in conjunction with optical, digital, algorithmic, and physical manipulations to investigate nuanced understandings of the way that image making is intertwined with the idea of a façade.
