Stephanie Tisza is a time-based artist and educator. She grew up in a working class neighborhood on the Southwest Side of Chicago. At age 6 she learned how to ride a bike and subsequently ran away from home for several hours. Someday, she wants to live on a houseboat.
In her early 20s she studied experimental filmmaking under James Benning at CalArts in Valencia, California before acquiring her MFA in 2011 at the University of Illinois at Chicago. Her work is motivated by an interest in the aesthetics of place, voyeurism and restrained intimacy.
Stephanie's work has been shown internationally in galleries, film festivals & screening programs. Her most recent exhibitions include Chicago Underground Film Festival, Los Angeles Center for Digital Art and Chicago Filmmakers. She enjoys collaborating with musicians and has recently created videos for Girl Group Chicago and Charlie Deets.
