Richardson lives and works in the unceded traditional territory of the W̱SÁNEĆ peoples on Vancouver Island, Canada. Taking cues from 19th-century landscape painting, 20th-century cinema, and 21st-century planetary research, Richardson (born 1972) crafts digital works which offer imaginative glimpses into the future that prompt careful consideration of the present.
Richardson's work has been selected for the Beijing, Busan, Canadian, Gwangju and Montréal biennales, as well as major moving image exhibitions including TIFF and Sundance Film Festival. She is internationally represented in the collections of the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, SMoCA, Albright-Knox Art Gallery, National Gallery of Canada, Art Gallery of Ontario, Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, Arts Council Collection, Southampton City Art Gallery, and Towner among others.
