Join Daata Curator Olivia Bright in conversation with artist Leeroy New and author Eliza Victoria to discuss their recent commissions for the Daata x AFP AR Art Trail, Aparisyon.
Leeroy New is a Manila-based multidisciplinary artist whose practice overlaps and intersects with different creative industries: fashion, filmmaking, theater, public installations, product design, and performance. This practice of moving across different modes of creative production has become the backbone of his work, driven by concepts of world building, hybrid myth-making, and social change.
Eliza Victoria is the author of several books including the Philippine National Book Award-winning Dwellers, the novel Wounded Little Gods, the graphic novel After Lambana (a collaboration with Mervin Malonzo), and the science fiction novel-in-stories, Nightfall. Her fiction and poetry have appeared in several publications, most recently in LONTAR: The Journal of Southeast Asian Speculative Fiction, The Best Asian Speculative Fiction, The Dark Magazine, The Apex Book of World SF Volume 5, Fireside Fiction, and Future SF. She has won prizes in the Philippines’ top literary awards, including the Carlos Palanca Memorial Awards for Literature. Her one-act plays have been staged at the Virgin LabFest at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Dwellers, Wounded Little Gods, and After Lambana are scheduled to be released internationally by Tuttle Publishing in 2022. Visit her at elizavictoria.com.
