About us

Working collaboratively since 2004, Dee Hibbert-Jones and Nomi Talisman engage in dialogues about power, politics and emotions. Their work investigates the ways individuals manage power systems from the mundane to the extreme, through videos, sculpture, installation and public work. Their projects galvanize voices and elicit opinions from the public that are seldom heard; giving voice to stories that lie below the surface, reaching beyond conventional methods of communication, they draw social, cultural, and political metaphors from everyday life.

 Their work has been exhibited and screened in Europe, Israel, Japan and the U.S. in galleries, museums and at international festivals. They have been awarded a National Endowment for the Arts Artists’ Project Grant (with the Berkeley Art Center), a European Cultural Council Grant with Social Impact (for Psychological Prosthetics™), a Creative Work Fund Grant, a San Francisco Artist Grant, a Center for Cultural Innovation Grant, Cal Humanities Grant, Pacific Pioneer Fund and a Media Maker Fellowship at Bay Area Video Coalition (all for Living Condition) as well as a residency at the MacDowell Colony, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (SF, 2014) among others. In 2009-2011 they produced ‘I-140′, a video piece and photographic work about the process – and agony – of Talismans’ account with the US immigration services, on her way to become a permanent resident. Living Condition is their first animated documentary film.
