Under Construction

HELLO@STUDIOREV.ORG • (917) 902-5396

We are artists, techies, immigrants, workers, women, and youth codesigning creative media and public art to redistribute power and build socioeconomic and cultural equity.

 We’ve impacted the lives of millions of working families, migrant workers, teens and college students, youth from historically underserved communities, and policy makers through the media and platform that best captures their imagination.

We’ve made mobile studios, immersive installations, apps, books, augmented reality experiences, films (documentary, fiction, animation, hybrid), choreographed dances, character design (including one whose fame rivals Santa Claus), and more.

Marisa Morán Jahn

Founder and Executive/Artistic Director

Jahn is an award-winning artist of Chinese and Ecuadorian descent. Characterizing her playful approach, MIT CAST writes, ‘[Jahn] introduces a trickster-like humor into public spaces and discourses, and yet it is a humor edged with political potency.” Since 1999, Jahn has taught in public schools, afterschool programs, worker centers, and more recently on a university level at Columbia University, MIT’s Art, Culture, and Technology, and The New School and is an internationally recognized speaker at venues such as The White House, Tribeca Film Festival, Creative Time, National Fine Arts Museum of Taiwan, Museum of Modern Art, and more. She has exhibited works at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, ArtBrussels, Asian Art Museum, ICA Philadelphia, New Museum, and more. Her work has been reviewed in The New York Times, CNN, BCC, ArtForum, Art in America, The Fader, Wall Street Journal, and more and received awards from Creative Capital, Anonymous Was a Woman, Sundance, Visible Project, and more. 


Caroline Garcia

Collaborator, Performer

Caroline Garcia (lives and works in New York + Sydney) is an interdisciplinary artist from Sydney, Australia. She works across live performance and video through a hybridized aesthetic of cross-cultural dance, ritual practice, new media, and the sampling of popular culture and colonial imagery. Caroline’s recent projects include Flygirl, developed at the EMPAC Residency, facilitated by Australia Council for the Arts in 2017, and performances at the Manila Biennale, Art Central Hong Kong, and The Vera List Center for Arts and Politics NYC, all in 2018. Caroline was one of the eight artists selected for Primavera 2018: Young Australian Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, and is the 2018/19 recipient of the American Australian Association’s AUSART Fellowship Award.
