Summer Dunsmore is an artist, producer and video documentarian from San Diego, California. A graduate of the MFA in Experimental and Documentary Arts program at Duke University, her work focuses on expanding collaborative and immersive transmedia storytelling practices through video, text and installation. Her portfolio includes an hour-long installation utilizing video documentary, performance and live-interfacing sound technologies for Durham’s Moogfest 2018, as well as the 2017 premiere of her text and video installation, In Other Words, Other Worlds, as a resident at the Art Produce Gallery in San Diego, CA. In 2018, Dunsmore led the creation of an innovative place-based installation which explored the “past, present, and future” of two historical school sites, the Anderson-Rosenwald School and Laurel Elementary School, in Madison County, North Carolina. Following her fellowship, she completed an interdisciplinary artist residency at Pocoapoco in Oaxaca City, Mexico. In addition to her installation work, she has been a professional in the media industry for more than six years, and has shot and edited short-form video content for outlets like Marketplace-APM, Consequence of Sound, the Duke University Campus Center Art Collection, Project Concern International, and more. She is currently an adjunct lecturer at USC Annenberg in the Public Relations (BA) and Journalism (BA) programs.
