Film and video artist Katherin McInnis really captured the jurors’ attention with her recent work titled Model Prisoner. This riveting eight-minute film focuses on a single “model prisoner” in the enormous prison system in Texas—a not to be missed short film! Her upcoming fellowship project will make use of footage shot on the back roads of California, Nevada and Arizona, providing an examination of land use and the interaction of natural and social history. She has exhibited her film and video works in gallery settings and film festivals around the United States and in Europe. Katherin received her BFA in Literature from Swarthmore, and her MFA in Film/Video from the California College of the Arts.
