About Miyuki Baker

Miyuki is a resident of the place where circles overlap. As a queer, nomadic, multi-racial/lingual female mixed-media artist activist and healer, she uses common or discarded objects, personal anecdotes, public spaces and performance to make accessible art that brings non-mainstream identities and ideas into maximum visibility. After graduating from Swarthmore College in 2012, she traveled for 14 months as a Watson Fellow to fifteen countries documenting the intersections of art and activism in queer/trans communities in blog posts and self-published magazines while making performance art. The eight magazines Miyuki created on this trip (queerscribe.com) and their strong media following exemplify her illustration/graphic design, storytelling and people skills. Her work has been featured in several magazines such as Hyphen, Broken Pencil and Knik, blogs and radio shows, well-known for their interactive and eye-catching mixed media approach to activism that utilizes both online media and on-site performance and workshops. This fall she will begin the PhD program at UC Berkeley in Performance Studies. You can follow her travels at heymiyuki.wordpress.com and email her at heymiyuki@gmail.com

    love this – so poetically put as well 🙂

  2. The truth of these secrets rings like little bells in late December. I especially liked the laptop one.

  4. Thanks MJ and Marcus! Marcus, I think that little bells ringing in late December is another one 😉 Sandra, those are amazing ‘secrets’… I had to look up what petrichor was. For the reference of others who don’t know the word either:

    pet·ri·chor
    ˈpeˌtrīkôr/
    noun
    1.
    a pleasant smell that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.
    “other than the petrichor emanating from the rapidly drying grass, there was not a trace of evidence that it had rained at all”

  5. Love it! I also enjoy listening to people make music sans the overproduction that you find so pervasive in the music industry today, i.e. a guitar and two people in harmony, nothing else, shot and thrown onto YouTube.

    And baked goods. Got any good vegan recipes for me to try? 🙂

    • MMmmmhh! Yes! A capella too is so underrated (well, except for at Swat) but yeah guitar + two people in harmony is great huh? Remember that night we spent in Seoul at Acousticholic? Such a fun night. I loved how we just started dancing swing!

      Hmm I’ll think of some recipes! Despite my last name, I’m quite a horrible baker! lol
