Marie Alarcón is a multimedia artist based out of Philadelphia, PA. She has a B.A. in Non-Fiction Filmmaking and Post Colonial Studies from The Evergreen State College, Olympia, WA, and a Masters of Fine Arts with a Certificate in Time Based Media, from the University of Pennsylvania, School of Art and Design. Alarcón has worked in community media as an educator and producer through Scribe Video Center, as well as being a teaching artist for numerous arts and educational organizations in Philadelphia, PA, Olympia, WA, and Portland OR.

Alarcón’s work is inspired by liminality, hybridity and the way that cinema functions as collective memory. Using digital manipulation and animation in her work, she is interested in digital/analog hybrids that reclaim a tactile relationship to the hyper-real. Her relationship to environment and place is informed by psychogeography, and notions of place and its production. With a focus on the problematic of communication, she continuously asks “how do we express the invisible in a culture of visible evidence?” and “In what ways can technological innovations begin to bridge the experiential gap between ourselves and others?”
