Artist Statement: 
As a young Pinay growing up in the suburbs of DC, very far away from her family in Batangas, she realized that her relationship with her heritage has always been mediated by the internet. She is interested in globalism and the way that technology has brought us closer and further away from our diasporic roots. Arteche’s work revolves around epistemology, acting as an interlocutor between traditional research, oral history, and Internet searches. She works in photography, installation, and social practice.
