Abraham Avnisan

Abraham Avnisan is an experimental writer and new media artist whose work is situated at the intersection of image, text, and code.

He is a fulltime Artist-in-Residence at University of Washington Bothell and the recipient of a Digital Studies Fellowship through Rutgers University—Camden and a Digital Humanities Summer Fellowship through the Simpson Center for the Humanities.
