Lani Asunción (they/she) is an interdisciplinary multimedia artist who makes socially engaged work that uses transmedia storytelling in the form of video, print, photography, sculpture, design, new media: AI, AR, and immersive digital environments. Creating spaces to contemplate decolonization and encourage conversations that facilitate healing and collective empowerment. Asunción’s work uplifts their multiracial Filipinx-American ancestral and lived experiences in transmuting intergenerational traumas through ritualized performance that confront oppressive U.S. histories of violence and imperialism. Their work embodies counter-narratives using technology to interact and engage with the public in ways that divert gatekeeping, questioning established narratives and instead centers and enacts alternative ethics of care, community healing, and social solidarity.
