Makena Gadient is an artist primarily working with time and connection as her materials. Working across a wide variety of disciplines she creates stories that become experiences. Through acts of vulnerability and radical honesty she is interested in making contact with herself, the past, and the people who interact with her work. Born and raised in Maui, Hawaii, she has spent the last five years in Seattle making films, curating, and creating work about personal histories. She is both terrified and excited about what the future has to offer her.
