Vietnamese-American artist and director exploring identity with virtual reality and performance art.
Teek was born in Hibbing, Minnesota after her family fled from Saigon, Vietnam. She studied film and architecture at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. In 2009, Teek moved to Los Angeles to work in film production. After an illuminating first experience painting in 3D, she became transfixed with the endless possibilities of using virtual reality as a new dimension of storytelling.
Her latest work Grisaille (2019) is a two-part installation that uses the presence of the artist and viewer to complete an ever-expanding collective painting. Throughout its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival New Frontier, a total of 223 people became a part of the experience.
She lives and works as an independent artist in Los Angeles, California.
