Anna Uddenberg explores social conventions and norms that are the product of consumer culture. She challenges ingrained ways of thinking and seeing as well as ideas of mental and physical mobility.

A NonHuman Horizon explores art that situates California’s ecology in meditations of personal and collective social marginalization.
