Marika Borgeson is a filmmaker and photographer currently based in Los Angeles, California. Fascinated by the fluidity and mythology of American histories, she uses film and video to explore the suspension of time and the creation of legends through historic sites, museums, landscapes, and archives. She also works with 16mm film using cameraless techniques and alternative processes.
Her work has screened in galleries and festivals, including the New York Film Festival in Views from the Avant Garde, the Ann Arbor Film Festival, the Void Gallery in Derry, Northern Ireland, and the Media City Film Festival in Windsor, Canada.
