Mirka Morales is a San Francisco-based media artist from Puerto Rico. Working in 16mm film and digital formats, lucid dreams are created from an intimate, poetic, DIY perspective. Images unfold organically, from an experiential point-of-view, using a variety of cinematic techniques, including time-lapse, stop-motion animation and live action.
Recent short films include Reciprocity Failure; Imum Coeli (bottom of the sky); and Elfmädchen. Her work has screened at festivals, galleries, museums and cinematheques, such as the Chicago Underground Film Festival, Antimatter, Sundance Film Forward at the Museo de Puerto Rico, Anthology Film Archives, Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, and Burning Man.
Elfmädchen received the Best Animation Award at Chicago Underground. She is currently working on a long form experimental narrative, titled 13th Street Division.
