  • Athena Kafantaris, Media Factory Outreach & WBTV-LP Coordinator

    Athena is a multidisciplinary artist currently focused on performance, video, puppetry, and costuming. She loves the way machines communicate and has a soft spot for analog gear, glitches, and interference. Her love of cables and connections began when she learned how to connect an Atari 2600. Her brother was the only one who knew how to hook it up and would disconnect it when he left the house so no one else could play. She's been crawling behind TVs and plugging things in ever since.
