Now I'm in the Kitchen

Now I'm in the Kitchen

Yana Pan is an animation director and designer, originally from China, currently working and living in Los Angeles. Yana focuses on 2D frame by frame animation with a multimedia visual. She uses animation as a means to investigate her own relationship to the world around her, the intimate relationship between the animator and single frame allows her to think and analyze the puzzle again and again. The puzzle can be social psychology, culture, mother-daughter relationship or sometimes simply “why are there so many little bird houses in my neighborhood?”. In 2022, she graduated from the California Institute of the Arts with an MFA in Experimental Animation. In 2016, she received a BFA from the School of Visual Arts.
