About

Merritt Symes is a video artist and filmmaker based in New York City. She studied fine art at the University of Melbourne, design at Swinburne University, and film production at the New School. Her work creates audio-visual “resonance machines,” from both found and original footage, in order to capture a glimpse of the unsayable or unconveyable. Her films are concerned with creaturely lives and loves, uncanny connections, impersonal intimacies, hauntological phenomena, the unraveling of forms, and the spaces between things.
