Stephanie Barber (Faculty)

Stephanie Barber (Faculty) is a multidisciplinary artist working primarily with language in myriad manifestations. This language shows up in the form of short and long films, essays and poems, songs, photographs, and performances. Her work is conceptual and poetic, with an emphasis on the tender delicacy of the natural world, mortality, and love. Though a hybrid of essay, poetry, and narrative, the work is philosophical and swings wildly between humor and tragedy and, when at its best, attains these two states simultaneously. Her work has been shared widely in galleries, festivals, and museums. Her videos are distributed by Video Data Bank and her films can be found at Canyon Cinema and Fandor.com. Her books Night Moves and these here separated... were published by Publishing Genius Press in 2013 and 2010 respectively. Her collection of very short stories All The People was published by Ink Press Productions in 2015. Her haiku collection Status Update Vol. 1 was published in the fall of 2019 by CTRL+P and her full-length play Trial in the Woods will be published by Plays Inverse in Winter 2021.
