Dean Taylor is an interdisciplinary artist and curator who works primarily in photography, filmmaking, and sound. Inspired by natural patterns and phenomena, she explores palpable and corporeal materials through the phantasm with experimental sound and lens-based media. A self-taught drummer, beat and rhythm influences the flow of her multimodal work. She often works collaboratively with institutions, artists, and musicians to produce multimedia events. Taylor is the Founder and Editor of Hiss Magazine, which ran three issues and provided a space for femme, non-binary, and LGBTQIA artists to share their work and engage in contemporary art and culture. She is the recipient of a Greater Columbus Arts Council Media Arts Fellowship (2015) and a Cart Pushers Studio Residency (2019). Her films have screened in the United States and India. Taylor is currently a freelancer and news videographer in central Ohio.
