Biography

Associate Professor, School of Art, Katherine K. Herberger College of the Arts

Trained in sculpture at Parsons School of Design (BFA), Tyler School of Art (MFA), and at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Hilary Harp creates sculptures, installations and media projects which explore new hybrid forms, and challenge categories, particularly categories of high and low, male and female, technology and craft. Since 2003 she has collaborated with Suzie Silver on a range of projects. Their videos have screened at over one hundred festivals on four continents and are distributed by the Video Data Bank. Harp’s awards include a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, a Heinz Creative Heights Grant, and an Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant. Collaborations between Harp and Barry Moon integrate interactivity and data-visualization in sound-sculptures. Swing, commissioned by Scottsdale Public Art for the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall, allowed viewers to interact with pendulums to control motors and sound.  Thermal Image, funded by a Project Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, expresses twitter data in physical and sonic forms.   Her installation Carrier Signal was on view at New Adventures in Sound Art in Toronto, CA in May 2014. Her ongoing project with Suzie Silver, “Fairy Fantastic!” a web-based queer fairy and folk tale video series for gender non-conforming kids of all ages, has recently screened at festivals in Belarus, Portugal, Romania and Australia.
