EndNite2DV.mov.Still001Trained in sculpture at Parsons School of Design (BFA), Tyler School of Art (MFA), and at the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture, Hilary Harp creates sculptures, installations and media projects which explore new hybrid forms, and challenge categories, particularly categories of high and low, male and female, technology and craft. She has exhibited her work widely including: the Gale Gates Gallery, The Sculpture Center, White Columns and Esso Gallery in New York City; Delaware Center for Contemporary Art in Wilmington, DE; The Philadelphia Art Alliance and the Samuel Fleisher Art Memorial in Philadelphia, PA, and Bucheon Gallery in San Francisco. She has been artist in residence at the Fine Arts Work Center in Provincetown, The Kohler Center for Arts and Industry, and the Djerassi Resident Artists Program. Since 2003 she has collaborated with Suzie Silver on a range of projects. Their single channel videos have screened at over one hundred festivals on four continents and are distributed by the Video Data Bank. Harp’s awards include a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, a Heinz Creative Heights Grant, and an Arizona Commission on the Arts Project Grant.  Recent collaborations between Harp and Barry Moon have begun to integrate interactivity and data-visualization in sound- sculptures. Swing, commissioned by Scottsdale Public Art for the Scottsdale Civic Center Mall, allowed viewers to interact with pendulums to control motors and sound. Their recent project, Thermal Image, funded by a Project Grant from the Arizona Commission on the Arts, expresses twitter data in physical and sonic forms. Harp is Associate Professor of Sculpture at Arizona State University.
