Lori chose Filmmaking as her official second language in 2003-ish, bumping German into third place. Eventual fluency is important to her, so she employs many forms/formats, practices frequently with others, and tries not to shy away from expressing her thoughts on behavior, participation, frustration, failure, and in-eloquence. Lori has many lives to live simultaneously. They currently teach/work at SAIC, coordinate and program for the Chicago Underground Film Festival, make films/videos, project, perform, and compulsively collaborate. A Wexner Center Artist in Residence and a Fulbright Fellow, her work has screened internationally in festivals, galleries and on television.
