Tracy Maurice is a multidisciplinary artist who works across platforms in photography, film, and art. Her practice—a research-based, project-to-project approach—embraces analog techniques that are often inspired by special effects from the early cinema, science, nature, and dance. She frequently uses a black background to create images that play with light and aim to recast and redefine darkness as something transcendent and connected to (not an absence of) nature. From 2004-2008 Maurice was the Creative Director for Arcade Fire. In that role, she created album artwork, music videos and live experiential content for the albums Funeral and Neon Bible; this includes the acclaimed interactive music video for the band’s single, “Black Mirror.” In 2008, Maurice won a Juno Award for Best Director of the Year for her work on Neon Bible. She was recently in residence at the Musée d'art contemporain de Montréal with choreographer and live artist Dana Michel, where the pair created a public film lab called Jams Do Jams as part of the Françoise Sullivan Exhibition.
