"Harvestworks is a non-profit art organization that provides artist residency programs, educational workshops for artists who have interests in electronic art, and they curate art exhibitions and performances. My main tasks include: assisting and providing technical support to clients, working on archiving the media art collection, filming and editing events and exhibitions, and administrative support."
Harvestworks Office, Soho, New York
"I am impressed by how ABI manages their alumni group, those activities such as artist visits and member gatherings, helped me to build my own professional connection, which will be very helpful in future."

"Working at Harvestworks has helped me understand how a non-profit organization works, and helped me to expand my theoretical knowledge about new media art. My ability of technical software has improved through working on assisting video and animation techniques. This will be helpful for my future career, as I dive into the more technical aspects of creating."
