Eden Redmond is a citizen of the West Coast who currently serves as the Co-Director and Operations Coordinator at Signal Fire. She was born and raised in Sacramento, schooled in Ashland and San Francisco, and now resides in Vancouver, Washington. Eden is a multimedia artist and critical arts writer most interested in artistic production that seeks answers to economic, material, and mortal mysteries (and usually all three at once). Her projects have explored Tumblr-based digital still life photography, ghost hunting reality television shows, and narrative taxidermy displays at Cabela’s.
Eden is currently co-authoring research about subversive comedy in women’s workplace films from the 1980s; most recently this project was recognized with an award at the 2019 Western Association of Women Historians conference.
Eden’s writing can be found in Living Room Light Exchange (San Francisco), 60 Inch Center (Portland), Sightlines Journal (San Francisco), and Departures in Critical Qualitative Research (UC Press). She has exhibited artwork all along the I-5 corridor and in 2016 she held a residency at Studio XX in Montreal with the collective members of Bad Girls Club.
