Rachel Lin Weaver
Lesley Duffield

Rachel Lin Weaver creates works that span video, installation, sound, and performance. She uses a mix of experimental documentary, performative, and parafictional strategies, and her artworks explore memory, the human and the nonhuman, landscapes and people in flux, and ecological systems. Her creative interests relate directly to her upbringing in wilderness areas and rural communities in poverty, and she finds many useful metaphors in the natural world. Weaver’s works have been exhibited in numerous cities in the US, as well as in Mexico, Canada, Belize, the UK, Ireland, Norway, Finland, Iceland, Sweden, Hungary, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Croatia, Colombia, Argentina, China, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Korea, India, Tunisia, Nigeria, Iran, Israel, and Qatar. She was awarded residencies at the Santa Fe Art Institute, the University of Utah Taft Nicholson Center for Environmental Humanities, the Icelandic Textiles Center, and The Weight of Mountains Filmmaking Residency program.

Lesley Duffield is an interdisciplinary artist and theorist. He practices and teaches across the areas of documentary, installation, experimental video, animation, 3D computer graphics, and critical theory. Centering around themes of play, his past projects and scholarship have investigated the ludic as a means of mediating the complex intersections of power, privilege, and representation; the role of play in generative systems; serious play in collaboration; embodied play as a means of recreating personal narrative and memory; the family; ecology and memory.
