BIO
Since high school, Columbus video artist, Nicolette Swift has been capturing life and creating videos. In 2005 she graduated from The Ohio State University with a double major in Art History and Film and Media Studies. While in her undergrad she discovered a love for working with archival materials. She obtained a Master’s of Library and Information Science with a focus in multimedia access from Kent State University in 2007. Since then she has worked with many individuals as well as The Ohio State University to create promotional and educational videos and materials. With the help of her husband and the support of OSU’s Film Studies Program she co-founded The Columbus Moving Image Art Review, which is now in its third year of holding quarterly hour-long screenings of moving image work from Central Ohio artists. For the last 3 years, she has also been co-chair of the student division of the Columbus International Film and Video Festival. Her personal projects include avant garde visual essays that incorporate found, archival, and cultural materials that find life as new video. Recently her work incorporates the research skills from her Information Science background. In addition to the aforementioned visual essays is this current body - an abstract visual series of city landscapes; simply titled “City Walks”.
