Made with love by printing out frames from a video and having my family and friends draw all over them.


Zoe Friedman is an interdisciplinary artist that works with installation, video and sound. Her work explores the wild and domestic, the strange and familiar, uniting faraway places with the objects that surround us in our daily life. Through animation, collage and ornamental design, Zoe’s lighthearted and intricate work evoke the humor and beauty of nature and our connection to it.

Zoe has had solo exhibitions in Copenhagen, Denmark, Brooklyn, NY, Oakland, CA, Washington DC, Arlington VA, and Baltimore, MD. She is an Assistant Professor and Coordinator of the Time Based Media Program at Anne Arundel Community College. She is currently working on a large-scale permanent installation for the Enoch Pratt Public Library in Hampden, Baltimore.
