Ann Steuernagel is an experimental video and sound artist. Her visual work accentuates the gestures and quotidian rhythms of her subjects. Steuernagel’s sound work—a blend of music, ambient sound, spoken word, and noise—stems from her decade-long collaboration with Caitlin Corbett.
Steuernagel is currently experimenting with originally recorded sound, found sound, and with turn-of-the-century mechanical means of audio reproduction. During her time at Radcliffe, she intends to combine the results of her sound experiments with abstract film/video imagery to create three Audio Visions (experimental videos).
Steuernagel’s work has been shown throughout the United States, in cities including Boston, New York, and San Francisco as well as in Canada, Mexico, and at the Rencontres Internationales Hors-Circuit Festivals in Paris and Berlin. In 1999, her video boy running won first prize at the XX VideoArt Festival in Locarno, Switzerland. She has received grants from the Somerville Arts Council and the LEF Foundation and a media fellowship from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
