About Aurora Barksdale

Aurora Barksdale is a visual artist and writer. She creates experimental films and games that focus on conveying and evoking emotion through nontraditional techniques. Her background in performance and design for theater has given her a keen sense of space and character, which she brings to her visual and written work. Through the excavation and transformation of meaning, Aurora creates her work out of found footage, old stories, and layering of image, sound, and thought.

Aurora’s interest in artistic craft is rivaled only by her enthusiasm for analysis and active engagement in the arts. She is passionate about media literacy and the importance of arts education, and is working to fuse these two realms as she grows as a creator.
