My art is fueled by action – Autumn Ahn
Autumn Ahn is an artist from head to toe.
We asked her to describe herself through 3 statements/anecdotes, and here it goes:
1. Saying yes & moving on
The « Underground » mural in Boston from 2008 was my first big commission. My friend Maria Molteni and I spent one month in 2008 going to the skate ramp everyday and sometimes sleeping there until it was finished. It was torn down 3 months later.
« Learning to let go clears your head and your heart to allow room to focus on new projects. »

« Collaborations are often experimental and can trigger surprising new ideas »
3. Exploring Alone
« Putting myself in a foreign environment is a great way to find inspiration »
When I feel stuck or bored I explore by wandering aimlessly, going to a new bar, taking my bike to work instead of the metro, or traveling to a different country. I always end up finding something beautiful, bizarre or funny.
Autumn joined KSAT during Fall 2012, she will present an installation that deals with space and perception during our KSAT CAMP#1 on December 15th! Exciting!
