Terah Maher

Terah Maher received a Masters of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School and Design and has been teaching experimental animation in Harvard’s Visual and Environmental Studies Department since 2006. Her design work investigates the potentials of constructing narrative experience within physical spaces. She has worked as production designer on internationally screened shorts, and designed many exhibitions, including “Frame by Frame, Animated at Harvard,” at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (2010). Maher’s film work, influenced by her years as a modern dancer, explores the structural systems inherent in animation processes in her efforts to extend the expressive potential of the human body.
