Lana Z Caplan
San Luis Obispo, California, USA
In addition to single-channel films or videos in essay form, video art and performance pieces, Lana Z Caplan has made experimental documentaries, virtual reality experiences, public art video installations and published photography books. In many of her works, the technology itself - digitally generated realities, landscape referent projections, historic photo processes, internet images, multi-channel or interactive installations - is used to transform known material into something unfamiliar, tangible reality into virtual reality. Her work has an international exhibition record and has been reviewed in publications such as ARTNews, The Boston Globe and Hyperallergic.com. Caplan is currently an Assistant Professor of Photography and Video at Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo.
