Alma Haser is portraitist fusing tradition with playfully futuristic distortions. While her primary medium is photography, she also uses intricate paper-folding techniques, collage, and more recently, puzzle-making to construct complex geometric forms. With absurdist humor and wit, Haser considers the way in which technology informs identity and how hyper-connectivity is changing what it means to be human.
