Sophie Wang (aka shuf) is a second generation Chinese American zine gremlin who challenges our taken-for-granted assumptions about western science through multimedia forms ranging from comics to experiential exhibits. She draws from her postgrad training in Science and Technology Studies and her many years making art of widely varying quality. In her free (radical) time, she recommends the Remembrance of Earth’s Past scifi series to strangers, watches an embarrassing amount of Dota 2, and does development work for nonprofits.
