About Sondra Perry
Born in 1986 in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, Sondra Perry creates interdisciplinary works that employ video, performance, and digital media to investigate identity, technology, and Blackness, often through the lens of her personal and family history. Perry’s moving-image works and installations foreground the tools of digital production as a way to critically reflect on new technologies of representation and to remobilize their potential. She is committed to democratizing technology and making all her videos free online. Having earned a BFA from Alfred University and MFA from Columbia University, New York, Perry is widely active as a teacher. She is currently pursuing a degree in psychoanalysis through the Respecialization Program at the Institute for Psychoanalytic Training and Research (IPTAR). She lives and works in Newark, New Jersey.
