Rebecca Morrison is a Boston-based multimedia artist whose work explores the intersection of social ritual and digital culture. Her practice incorporates video, photography, installation and animation, and combines techniques of direct observation with performance and mixed media collage. Her recent multi-channel video projects consider the implications of digital technology for the body, language, and family bonding. Often situating her camera in spaces purposed for entertainment, she examines themes of spectatorship, intimacy, alienation, voyeurism, disguise, and public vs. private space. A native of Boston, she has worked for more than a decade as a photographic educator for students of all ages. She holds a BFA in Photography and Art History and an MFA in Film & Video from the Massachusetts College of Art & Design.
