Micah WEBER


Nationality: american

Micah H. Weber (b. 1985 - Las Vegas, Nevada - U.S.) is an artist working in experimental animation, text, sound, and document(ary). He employs strategies of borderlinking, indirect memory, and fragmentation as a means for exploring class, familial disaster, and the narratives we tell each other in order to stay alive. He studied at the Pacific Northwest College of Art (Portland, Oregon), where he received his BFA; and at the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University (Richmond, Virginia), where he received his MFA.

Weber's work in animation has screened internationally at the Holland Animation Film Festival in Utrecht, Holland; the Ann Arbor Film Festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan; Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival in Hawick, Scotland; and FRACTO Experimental Film Encounter in Berlin, Germany.

In addition to film festivals, Weber has presented his research on animation as an emerging scholar, and attendee at the Society of Animation Studies (SAS) 30th Annual Conference, Then | Now | Next, at Concordia University, Montreal; and the Society of Animation Studies 29th Annual Conference, … And Yet It Moves!, at Università degli Studi di Padova, Italy. He currently runs a small publishing imprint, Huner Francis, focused on producing and distributing experimental time based works pointing beyond their means of transmission, into territories of literature, diary, documentary, and collage.

He lives and works between Portland, Oregon, and Chicago, Illinois.
