Shannon Pot

Edit. is an animation project inspired by Lisa Lowe’s “The Intimacy of Four Continents”, exploring the ways archives impact culture and state. It is meant to ask, “Who writes the histories we know?” and “What form are our histories documented? Why?”

Shannon graduated with a Visual Arts Drawing Major and a SPACE (Social Practice and Community Engagement) Minor. She is inspired by the learning curves of new mediums and finding community and connection through art practices. She experiments with drawing, painting, collage, videography, sound design, animation, poetry and prose. Reoccurring themes in her work include queerness in nature and body, landscapes of the mind, narration, critical theory and art therapy.
