Rosana Liang is a visual artist and software engineer currently working at Birchbox. She has previously worked at Kickstarter and as a visual arts adjunct professor at The College of New Jersey. Most recently, she helped cofound and is an active member of TBD Salon, a series of community-funded virtual studio visits that supports artists and arts organizers who have been impacted by COVID-19. Liang’s practice utilizes the body, and its relation to technology, as a way of focusing on connection and interdependence. Her recent work engages with systems and rules as a framework for her performances. Liang is a MFA Photography and Related Media graduate from Parsons School of Design, The New School and holds BAs in Fine Art and Communication Studies from the University of California, Santa Barbara. Liang was born and raised in Los Angeles, California and is currently based in Brooklyn, New York.
