Stephanie Barber

Stephanie Barber is an American artist who, though having produced and shown work in many media, is best known as an experimental filmmaker, video artist and writer whose films include catalog, dogs, total power:dead dead dead, shipfilm "dwarfs the sea" "the inversion, transcription, evening track and attractor" and many other short films and videos. Her film and video work is most notable for the deconstructive elements of her (often) strangely narrative and poetic soundtracks and the tensions these create when married to her mysterious and painstakingly composed images (these latter often constructed from found films or still images and hyperreferential to their source medium). Ms. Barber has had solo exhibitions of her film work at The Museum of Modern Art, the San Francisco Cinematheque, Chicago Filmmakers, Anthology Film Archives and many other museums, galleries and universities. Her film it fell possum was included in the Whitney Museum of American Art's exhibition, The American Century. Some of her films are distributed by Canyon Cinema Her lecture 'FOR A LAWN POEM' is published by Publishing Genius at
