She received MFA in photography at San Francisco Art Institute after an MS in biology at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. She currently lives in San Francisco.
Through photography, photo sculpture, and performance, Kacy continuously investigates the ways in which culture is shaped by capitalism and explores the idea of existentialism within the late capitalism era. The subject often intertwines with the manipulative nature of the capitalist system, the anxiety of being part of the disappearing middle class, and her immigrant experience in the USA.
