Zach Poff is a media artist, educator, and sound-recordist who lives and works in Brooklyn, NY. His recent work is concerned with the culture of broadcasting. In his videos and installations he subverts communications technology to reveal the structures and artifacts of media itself.
He has taught media theory and video art at Bennington College, Digital Photography at Cooper Union Continuing Education and his work has been shown in the U.S. and internationally at The Stonington Opera House, Hallwalls Art Center, Unity Performing Arts Center, Bennington College, Armenian Center for Contemporary Experimental Art, and Polli Talu Art Center (Estonia).
He was a member of MAP Intermedia, a group that combined dance, video and sound work in a collaborative environment that challenged the traditions of authorship within the performing arts.
His sound-design credits include Walid Raad’s performance/video My Neck is Thinner than a Hair, Lynn Sachs’ documentaries States of Unbelonging and Investigation of a Flame, (Golden Gate Award, San Francisco International Film Festival), Hollie Lavenstein’s CLEAVE, (Silver Hugo at the Chicago International Film Festival, Best Narrative Short at The Ann Arbor Film Festival).
