Kelli Anderson

About the Artist

Kelli Anderson is an artist, designer, animator, and tinkerer who pushes the limits of ordinary materials to seek out possibilities hidden in plain view. Her books and projects have included a pop-up paper planetarium, a book that transforms into a pinhole camera, a working paper record player, and techniques for misusing the RISO to create animations. Intentionally lo-fi, she believes that humble materials can provide entry into the endless, tunneling complexity of our world, making those wonders accessible on a multi-sensory, rich, human level. These projects confront our sense of possibility, which has been artificially-circumscribed by the dominance and black-boxness of tech. She is currently completing writing Alphabet in Motion, an interactive book on the relationship between typography and technology with Letterform Archive.
