My name is Jacquelyn Serrano. I am a multimedia artist that works with photography, video, installation and writing. I was born and raised in San Bernardino, California and am currently based in Oakland. As we transition deeper into the digital world as a result of COVID-19, my work makes sense of the way technology and the digital realm resides in our psyche. My work centers on fragmentation, nostalgia, and healing from various forms of relationship-based trauma and the intimacy that permeates from these experiences. Intimacy is deeply intertwined in my practice. Traces of people are left like a residue wherever we go and as we are beginning to discover, social media and the cyber world have similar effects. I am driven to capture or recreate these subtle instances of permeation left by people and pixels.
