Margaret Rorison is filmmaker and curator from Baltimore, MD. Her recent films explore the visceral nature of memory and its dialogue between space and experience. She is interested in the potentials of storytelling through the use of 16mm projection and sound, often collaborating with sound artists, exploring ways in which the image and machine can converse. Her work has been exhibited at Edinburgh International Film Festival, Images Festival, Miami PULSE Art Fair, The Walker Art Center, and The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. She is the co-founder and curator of the experimental film series, Sight Unseen, which has been running since June of 2012. She works as an audiovisual specialist at The National Gallery of Art and teaches filmmaking and photography at The Baltimore School for the Arts, The Maryland Institute College of Art and Anne Arundel Community College.
