August artist Hannah Spector created a daily practice of playing, looking, and sensing during their residency. On their site you’ll find two collections of video experiments that feel part nature documentary, part sculptural performance, part sci-fi, and part jokes. Cinepoems features brief moments of games with feet and physics, poems for insects, and other explorations. Getting to Know the Wind chronicles Hannah’s relationship with wind through text and video. The clips autoplay in single-page collages, forming chaotic yet calm antidotes to the infinite scroll. 

Hannah Spector is an interdisciplinary visual artist and poet working out of Austin, TX. Spector thinks of language as a solid object—a concrete and spatial expression that can overturn limiting perceptions of the everyday. Spector has exhibited work at The San Antonio Museum of Art, Blue Star Contemporary (SATX), Mass Gallery (ATX), The Visual Arts Center (ATX), Colab Projects (ATX), Transformer Gallery (DC), and Pyramid Atlantic (DC). They received their MFA from UT Austin and currently hold a Lecturer position at Texas State University. They also work as a community printmaking instructor at Flatbed Press.
