    Amanda Long is a video sculptor, animator, mirror maker, lover of the Earth and Sun and the animals, and a dreamer of fairy-tale visions. She fantasizes about giving technology a soul and making peace between humans and nature. Long’s artworks enable their viewers to share the role of being an artist by being active participants. She wants the artwork to be a type of “reclamation”, to offer people a sense of power over how they are represented on camera and over the space in which the artwork is shown. Her installations include Silly Faces aka Strike a Pose, National Portrait Gallery, Smithsonian, Washington, D.C. (2016); Wishing Well, Dyckman Farmhouse Museum, New York City (2016); and Portal at Socrates Sculpture Park, New York City (2014). A second installation of Silly Faces and an Animation Station opened at the Katara Children’s Mall, Doha, Qatar, in fall 2022.
