Kelli Anderson

Kelli Anderson (@kellianderson) is an artist, designer, animator, and tinkerer who pushes the limits of ordinary materials by seeking out possibilities hidden in plain view. Her books have included a pop-up paper planetarium, a book that transforms into a pinhole camera, and a working paper record. Intentionally lo-fi, she believes that humble materials can undo black boxes—and make the magic of our world accessible.

She is also known for the counterfeited New York Times—filled only with only good news from a Utopian future—that she worked on with the Yes Men (and for which they received the Ars Electronica Prix Award of Distinction.) Anderson has created design, animations, and illustrations for NPR, The New Yorker, Wired, MoMA, Pentagram, Tinybop’s award-winning Human Body app, the Exploratorium, and the real New York Times, as well as redesigns for NYC brands including Russ & Daughters and Momofuku. She has taught at SFPC and Parsons in NYC. [Website]
