Allison Tanenhaus on SoundBetter

Mesmerizing and memorable abstract art for Spotify Canvas loops, visualizers, album art, music videos, and branding

Allison Tanenhaus (she/her) is a New York–born, Boston–based digital glitch artist. She specializes in bold geometrics, kaleidoscopic color fields, trippy op art, thought-provoking truisms, and unexpected dimensional qualities.

Her primary formats include retrofuturistic GIFs, loops, and music videos; abstract public art; street art cat stickers; and large-scale video projections.

Source material consists of Allison’s original images (cellphone pics, satirical typography, salvaged works in progress) and collected artifacts that she alters via smartphone. Made with equal parts deliberation and experimentation, the results are rainbow-hued compositions that take on a psychedelic life of their own.

At a time when platforms pervasively cull personal data, she views creatively reclaiming files and devices as a radical act of autonomy, mindfulness, and personal ownership. Also looks way cool.

Notable installations and commissions include the ICA Store at the Institute of Contemporary Art/Boston; New England Synth Fest; Harvard Graduate School of Design; Boston Convention & Exhibition Center; and “GlitchKraft: Allison Tanenhaus + Friends” at Emerson Contemporary.
