About the Artist

Salise Hughes (Seattle) received a 2007 GAP for purchase of a laptop computer to help produce her experimental films. She works with found footage and manipulates each frame in Photoshop. Having her own equipment will enable her to work at home for the more labor-intensive portions of her process and focus her time using the Northwest Film Forum’s more advanced editing equipment. She will create a seventy-minute program of films to tour non-profit film venues and art museums across the country, which NWFF’s director Adam Sekuler has offered to book.

In 2008 Hughes was awarded a Seattle Mayor’s Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs' CityArtist Project.
