CRISTINA ISABEL RIVERA
I'm a visual artist based in San Francisco, Los Angeles. I've directed, produced, shot and edited still, motion, and multi-media projects around the world.
I'm currently focusing on a personal project that I self-funded. It's an experimental audiovisual documentary project that I shot in the Peruvian Amazon between 2018 and 2019. I was planning on returning to Peru in 2020 to finish but COVID happened. I'm adapting the work into smaller + more experimental formats to release as is while I wait to be able to travel again safely. I started learning audio production and node based visual programming language during quarantine to add new dimensions to my work. Learning about sound and creative tech is giving me the space to play and try different forms as I adapt my work to meet current times.
My work has seen film festivals, major publications, won awards and most importantly- it has inspired other creatives. My collective work was recognized with a grant from The Knight Foundation with Sound and Vision Miami.
