Annie Chen Ziyao is a photographer, video artist, and co-founder of :iidrr publishing platform.

Chen received her B.A. in art & art history and business from St.Lawrence University in 2018 and an MFA in Photo, Video, and Related Media from the School of Visual Arts in 2021. Her work has been featured in exhibitions nationally and internationally, which includes New York, Indianapolis, Vienna, London, Beijing, and Slovenia.

Chen's works always focus on the relationship between humans and the social environment, which takes a satirical view of social, cultural, and political issues. She explores people’s attitudes towards massive media messages, modern-day consumerism, and gender stereotypes. The range of mediums she uses to express her concept includes photography, video, performance, and interactive media. By using various mediums, she desires to create an artificial playground with humor and charm to replace the existing regulation.
