Filmmaker Anna Spence has a knack for making art that makes you wonder, “What is that?” and “Why can’t I stop looking at it?” There’s a provocative edge that runs through her work, displaying her commitment to blurring the lines of how viewers expect sight and sound to blend together. In this conversation with Floyd Hall, Anna talks about her Atlanta roots, making the switch from psychology to film, and video art’s evolution as a new creative platform.
