I would like to thank the parents of the other Genevieve Anderson who graciously gave me the domain name.  

Genevieve Anderson is an artist, filmmaker, and producer, making sculptures and narrative films with puppets.

Driven by her fascination of the human interior, she gives form to this inner realm through the unique potential of the puppet body. The puppet figure is a distillation of being: an avatar of the interior.

Reflecting this vision in her film work, she endeavors to create simple, human stories mining the delicate interior worlds puppets inhabit.

Her five short films have played at festivals worldwide and have garnered awards in Berlin, Chicago International, Seattle, Palm Springs, Rhode Island, among others, and have been broadcast on IFC (US) and ARTE (France, Germany).

Her figural sculptures have sold in galleries in Los Angeles, CA and Tubac, AZ. A recent recipient of the New Works Grant from the Tucson Arts Commission, she is currently working on a project exploring artifical intelligence and the creative impulse.

Compelled by the relationship between humans and technology, Genevieve also explores the topic in academic essays and blogs. (https://artcorejournal.net/2015/01/14/the-paradox-of-perfection-technology-vision-and-the-work-of-bill-viola-by-genevieve-anderson/)

Genevieve is a Rockefeller Media Arts Grant recipient and an Annenberg Fellow. She has a BFA from UCSB and an MA in Critical Studies from the USC School of Cinematic Arts.

As producer for the world-renowned video artist Bill Viola, she helped create content for numerous venues such as the Venice Biennale, the St. Paul Cathedral, London, and the Hamad International Airport in Qatar, among many others.

Aside from having a very prestigious degree in clowning from the Estudio Busqueda de Pantomimo in Guanajuato, Mexico, she adores roadside carnivals and is a keen hoarder of scrap metal, bones, and interesting old junk.

She lives in a farmhouse in Tubac, AZ with her son, Roman, and many wonderful creatures.
