Biography

(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) is a sculptor, photographer and experimental documentary filmmaker. His video work is closely related to the work he’s done in other media, particularly his photographic project, which intimately examines the individual in public space by isolating moments of psychological resonance within everyday experience. His video imagery extends the still image into a time-based medium, by carefully observing and often lingering on individuals. His soundscapes feature richly layered ambient sound and original music.

An Associate Professor of the Practice of Visual Art in the Department of Art, Art History and Visual Studies at Duke University, he is the recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts Visual Artist Fellowship in Sculpture, a Fulbright Scholar Award in Photography, and Josiah Charles Trent Foundation Grants for both Photography and Video. From 1995-2004 he worked for DoubleTake, the highly esteemed quarterly magazine of writing and photography, first as an editorial advisor and subsequently as a contributing photographer.

Noland has mounted numerous exhibitions of sculpture and photography in New York and elsewhere, including twenty solo exhibitions. His video work has screened in major international film and video venues, including the Grand Palais in Paris, France, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., The Full Frame Documentary Film Festival in Durham, N.C., The Ann Arbor Film Festival in Ann Arbor, Michigan, The Environmental Film Festival in Washington, D.C., The Athens International Film & Video Festival in Athens, Ohio, The Black Maria Film & Video Festival, and CineMarfa in Marfa, Texas.
