Korean-born Annie Han and US-born Daniel Mihalyo have been collaborators in the Seattle-based Lead Pencil Studio since 2002, working in the area of installation art and sculpture on an architectural scale. Their work ranges widely in media, materials, scales, and disciplines, with a pervading interest in architectural space and the urban environment—often in relationship to the natural world. Their media include ceramics, photography, laser scanning, video, sculpture, drawing, publishing, and installation. Their work is exhibited throughout the US with locations in Europe and Asia—with over 15 solo museum exhibitions and 30 group shows. Exhibition venues include the UT Austin Visual Art Center, Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art, MassArt Boston, Henry Art Museum, San Francisco MOMA, Boise Art Museum, Weatherspoon Art Museum, Portland Art Museum, Emily Carr Institute (BC), The Exploratorium, American Academy in Rome, Center on Contemporary Art, and the Aichi Triennale and Prague Quadrennials. They are recipients of the Rome Prize, The Architectural League of New York's Emerging Voices, Contemporary Northwest Art Award, and the New York Prize from the Van Alen Institute.
