Sabine Gruffat is an artist who works with experimental video and animation, media-enhanced performance, participatory public art and immersive installation. Machines, interfaces and systems constitute the language by which she codes the world. The creation of new ideas means inventing new tools, crossing analog and digital signals, or repurposing old machines to patch into new ones. By actively disrupting both current and outmoded technology, Gruffat questions standardized ways of understanding the world around us. Sabine’s films and videos have screened at festivals worldwide sucha as The Image Forum Festival in Japan and The Ann Arbor Film Festival and Migrating Forms in New York. Her feature film I Have Always Been a Dreamer has screened internationally including at the Viennale, MoMA Documentary Fortnight, Cinéma du Réel at the Centre Pompidou, and The Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival. Currently she is Associate Professor of Art at the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill.
