About the artists
Meredith Zielke and Yoni Goldstein are Winter 2019 Artists in Residence, co-sponsored by the Department of Radio/Television/Film's MFA in Documentary Media program and the Kaplan Humanities Institute. They make video documentary work / fabled documentaries / hyper-real documentaries which leak fiction into nonfiction, and vice versa, creating fantastical depictions of concrete landscapes. They ask “What can experimental documentaries do in the age of the neural image?”
