Ruth Hayes came to animation through drawing and printmaking. She works in film, digital video and pre-cinema formats including flipbooks, zoetropes and praxinoscopes. A committed experimentalist, she has explored visual phenomena, engaged in historical and political critique, mined personal experience, and investigated relationships between human and non-human worlds. Her current work focuses on 16mm cameraless processes and expanded cinema performance. Since 1997 she has taught at The Evergreen State College, integrating animation into courses in cultural studies, the sciences, and visual and media arts.
