Snack Witch

Snack Witch aka Joni Cheung is a grateful, uninvited guest on the unceded territories of the xʷməθkwəy̓əm, Skwxwú7mesh, Stó:lō, Səl̓ílwətaʔ/Selilwitulh, and Kanien’kehá:ka peoples. They get paid to make art most of the time, sometimes to teach and communicate digitally/IRL, but generally to drive friends and their things around #fulllicenselyfe. Her time is currently occupied by their candidacy as a Masters of Fine Arts in Sculpture and Ceramics at Concordia University, where she is investigating the interdependent relationship between objects, place and identity, while navigating discourses of transnationalism, migration, and diasporas. Joni likes to collect and reference still and moving images, texts, audio and soundscapes, objects, places and spaces, popular culture, and digital media in their interdisciplinary research-based practice. Aside from researching and writing, she likes doing snack and beverage reviews, medium length walks at the beach, being wrapped into a blanket burrito🌯 & cinnamon bun 🥐, and her perfect first date involves a thorough walkthrough at multiple grocery stores + Costco, getting bubble tea, and breads + pastries from all the bakeries🌈.
