Mariko Jana Azis is a designer, VJ, and multimedia artist.

Inspired heavily by Tantric literature and yogic philosophy, her work explores possibilities of the human body as a site of spiritual transcendence. Issues of feminism and colonialism inform the delicate relationship between the sensual and the objectified.

Azis is the Artistic Director for the electronic music group Broken Luxury as well as a writer and curator on the music website Bodega Beats.
