Kerian Varaine is a transdisciplinary artist living in the shadow of Kapukataumahaka, Ōtepoti, Aotearoa. "Kerian's practice is guided by endless curiosity, ingenuity and exploration, interfacing with analog and digital technologies, experimentation with film, and interaction with instruments. It is uncorrupted by commercial concerns, and is instead informed by human scientific enquiry, and emotional insights through sensory experience." -words from Dylan Lardelli
