Georgie Friedman is an interdisciplinary artist whose projects include large-scale video installations, single and multi-channel videos and several photographic series. Her projects examine personal and cultural relationships to uncontrollable natural forces. She investigates a wide range of phenomena including mild to severe atmospheric and oceanic conditions, such as hurricanes and tsunamis, along with deconstructing perceived geographic boundaries. By projecting video of natural elements onto sculptural elements or existing architecture, her video installations alter the elements’ properties, scale and impact to create new, experiential environments for viewers. She has lived, worked and exhibited throughout the United States. Her speaking engagements and exhibitions include museums, universities, galleries, film screenings and public art installations. She earned her MFA from the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston in conjunction with Tufts University and her BA from University of California, Santa Cruz. Professionally, she has taught at Massachusetts College of Art and Design, Boston College, Northeastern University and The School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, among other institutions.
