Christina Kerns is a new media artist working in photography, animation, net art and printed matter. She received her BFA in photography with a minor in art history from Pratt Institute and an MFA in interdisciplinary art from the University of Pennsylvania. Her work incorporates ideas of individuality, socially constructed value systems, time and aesthetic hollowness. She uses a visual American vernacular and photo-reflexive ideas to reinforce the shallowness of affectation. She lives and works in Philadelphia, PA exhibiting nationally and internationally.
