Blanca Bercial is an artist-scholar working on the field of Sound Studies. She recently graduated from the San Francisco Art Institute with a Master of Arts in History and Theory of Contemporary Art with an "Outstanding Thesis Award" from the institution. She uses sound and poetry as an inquiry about the ways we ignore and overlook common yet unexplored spaces, unutilized hideouts embedded within place, time, and in sound.
