Deborah Stratman is a Chicago-based artist and filmmaker who explores landscapes and systems. Much of her work points to the relationship between physical environments and human struggles for power and control that play out on the land. Her recent projects question elemental historical narratives about freedom, expansionism, sonic warfare and paranormal occurrences in the information age. Stratman works in multiple media, including public sculpture, photography, drawing and audio. Her work was featured in the 2004 Whitney Biennial and shown at The Museum of Modern Art, the Centre Pompidou, the Hammer Museum and many international film festivals, including Sundance, the Viennale, Ann Arbor, Oberhausen and Rotterdam. She is the recipient of Fulbright and Guggenheim fellowships and currently teaches at the University of Illinois at Chicago.
