Anna Hogg is a teaching artist and filmmaker working in the Los Angeles area.
Her work centers on the complexity of what it means to be a storyteller in the modern age. A story has a history, a context. It is the story of the story itself. Whether transformed by memory, adaptation, translation, preservation, censorship, or public opinion, a story has a life of its own. The trajectory of this life continually alters its form–and sometimes even content–on a fundamental level. And the voracity of the modern age has even further complicated this process of continual change by sheer virtue of its speed. The idea of the perpetually shifting story is the basis of Anna’s films, videos, and installations.
