Grace Anderson (She/her)

I grew up with the understanding that if you can imagine something, you can create it; this outlook has formed the foundation of my illustration practice and has influenced the work I am interested in making. My final project at GSA directly addresses my original motivation to study on the course; to establish my own, authorial voice and visual language as a storyteller.


The publication, STLKR, takes its starting point from my personal interest in thrillers and surveillance. STLKR explores the idea of oppressor vs oppressed—the watcher and the watched—in a alternate reality where one’s digital security can never be expected.


Science fiction deals with the reaction of human beings to changes in science and technology; in STLKR I want to expand upon this to include a the wider effects of these changes on society and culture; a society that itself is involved not just in the observation but also in speculation on the events of another’s life—often with only a partial or adequate knowledge of what is really happening, and why the events and narrative are unfolding.
