About Cristen

Cristen Leifheit is a moving image artist. With a professional background in photography, she uses her knowledge of the photographic image to craft image sequences from hand built sets and composited video. Her films have been screened in various galleries and festivals across the US and Europe. The videos emphasize bugs and animals as characters and themes that include paranoia, the cyclical, and survival. Cristen’s recent work has expanded to include technology’s role in the interruption of natural cycles and the transformation of the physical landscape. The medium of stop motion creates a surreal and transformative quality of the work that usually falls between the state of narrative film and experimental moving image.
