About Meytar Moran

I am an Israeli visual artist, based in New York and a recent graduate from the MFA program in the Photography, Video and Related Media at SVA, NY (May ’17). I received my BFA in photography (July, ’13) from the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, Jerusalem.

The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe, has been sparking people’s imagination for centuries. That spark is the material of my practice, as I direct the searchlight back towards the keepers of information and the curious observers.

while I am less interested in solving the riddle of existence, (though it would be undoubtedly fascinating), I choose to investigate the mysterious workings of the imagination and how, under the right conditions or contexts, it can produce UFO sightings out of ambiguous visual phenomena; fictional landscapes, or strange alien technology out of bland rock formations. I explore the associative implications of assembling fractured meanings as a way of coping with the unknown.

In this recently coined “post-truth” era, it is more evident that the truth is only secondary in significance to our ability to mold it to our vantage, and so I dare ask: What is the fragmented narrative and is it possible to plot its course?
