Michael Alexander Morris

Michael A. Morris is an artist and educator based in Cairo, Egypt, and Dallas, Texas USA. His work responds to the rapid changes in how moving images are created and experienced in the 21st century, affirming the traditional space of experiencing cinema while also exploring the implications of new media.

Morris has presented his work at museums, galleries, microcinemas, and film festivals internationally, including Crossroads at The San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, MediaLive at Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, The International Symposium of Electronic Art in Vancouver, Microscope Gallery, Istanbul International Experimental Film Festival, The Ann Arbor Film Festival, and Artist's Television Access.
