    Heather Kap­plow is a media, per­for­mance and in­stal­la­tion artist, liv­ing in the United States. Her artis­tic focus is on the for­mal char­ac­ter­is­tics and tex­tures of dig­i­tal media, and on in­ves­ti­gat­ing very sim­ple philo­soph­i­cal ques­tions about the work­ings of daily life through per­for­mance. These in­ves­ti­ga­tions are gen­er­ally play­ful, re­quir­ing au­di­ences to be ac­tive agents in the ex­plo­ration and art-cre­ation process. Kap­plow’s video pro­jects are of low res­o­lu­tion and short. Her work has re­ceived gov­ern­ment and pri­vate grants, and has been in­cluded in film and per­for­mance fes­ti­vals in the US, Fin­land, and China. She also en­gages in cu­ra­to­r­ial work/runs an artist res­i­dency pro­gram with a col­lec­tive known as the Berwick Re­search In­sti­tute. Pro­fes­sion­ally, Kap­plow works full time in pub­lic tele­vi­sion as man­ag­ing ed­i­tor for a web­site that show­cases the work of emerg­ing doc­u­men­tary film­mak­ers.
