In Mutter, Philadelphia-based artist, Lee Webster, uses video collage and photogrammetry, a digital process that recreates physical objects in digital space by stitching together many still photographs, to explore the physical experience of loss. “Mutter” is also an onomatopoeic word for human speech that is undecipherable. Webster’s video examines the aural word as a visual one, creating a video essay that tries to convey the distance, muddle, and muteness of loss.
Lee Webster works with and against the conventions of narrative and documentary film to resituate cinematic structures as installation, looped video, and live performance. Her research-based works are often born from a point of intersection between a line of personal narrative with a moment of social or historical relevance.
Webster received her MFA from Carnegie Mellon University and is the recipient of an Art Matters Foundation grant and a fellowship at the Kimmel Harding Nelson Center. Her work has been exhibited and screened at The Contemporary in Austin, TX, Microscope Gallery in Brooklyn, New York, the Portland Oregon Women’s Film Festival, as well as other venues.
