ABOUT THE CONTRIBUTOR
William Andersen’s artwork and point of view have been primarily influenced by his travels between the US and Asia over the last two decades. During this time, he has watched as regions like the Middle East and East Asia have emerged as economic and cultural forces and is fascinated by the tightening global web of economics, resource use, migration, and cultural hybridization. Because of this, the notions of globalization and hybridity are the central focus of his current artistic practice. He was awarded a Fulbright-Hays Fellowship to do research in Taiwan and China before moving to Kuwait in 2008.
