Vanessa Mei (they/she) is an arts polymath of Hokkien Chinese and Pākehā descent. They are currently the Kaitohu of The Pantograph Punch, an Aotearoa-based online arts and culture platform that is slick, sexy and thirteen years old. Prior to this they were Director of Enjoy Contemporary Art Space and prior to that, they were playing Stardew Valley while lying on the couch. They have published, performed and exhibited heaps as an artist and writer but you’re going to have to look up the details. A neurodivergent binch with IBS and a flair for catastrophic thinking, for the last few years they have been trying to escape hustle culture and build up the courage to finally write their pukapuka.
