Amy Harrison is a San Francisco-based artist who has more than ten years experience making award-winning short films and videos on personal and political subjects. Her first film was a documentary on an art activist group called the Guerrilla Girls, and she has gone on to win many grants and awards, including a National Endowment for the Arts Fellowship and a grant from the UC Institute for Research in the Arts. Her current video work explores the intersection of autobiography and landscape, and is the result of her musings on "deep time" and the nuclear legacy of the Cold War. (8/14)
