Robin Myrick is a conceptual and experimental artist working in photography, writing, and hybrid forms. Her projects often engage the transitory nature of the mediated moment, as expressed through television and film, portraiture and the body, and the rhetoric of identity, politics, consumerism, and disaster. She holds an MFA in Writing and Critical Studies from California Institute of the Arts. I Am This State Of Emergency is her first book.
