I met Gretchen Skogerson at a residency at Ucross in 2009. I was a little intimidated, as she'd just come off doing the Whitney Biennial. But it turns out, she's awesome. Her work is gorgeous and smart. And she is also a really good baker.

She just launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production of her new film Strange Play. I pledged $35, and I'm going to get a new ringtone that she designed, as well as the warm fuzzies. Check out her project here:
