Collaborative Fellow 2014-2015
Zack is a media artist/filmmaker/musician from Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan, and is currently based in Brooklyn, NY. He makes experimental documentaries and multimedia installations. His most recent project is a feature-length experimental documentary about the history of his tribe: the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, which has also been presented as a multimedia installation. Because his work often explores an indigenous worldview, he is necessarily in dialogue with ethnographic practice and conceptualizes his work as anti-ethnographic. He is particularly interested in exploring the construction of history, the creation of alternative histories, and the interstice between fact and fiction in documentary practice. He is a Gates Millennium Scholar and recently completed a B.A. at Bard College in the Film and Electronic Arts Department.
