Terah Maher, still from ChorosTerah Maher, still from Choros

Maher received a Masters of Architecture from the Harvard Graduate School of Design in 2006 and her BA in Architecture from Yale University in 1999. Her design work investigates the potentials of constructing narrative experience within physical spaces. She recently designed and co-curated (with Ruth Lingford) the exhibition Frame by Frame, Animated at Harvard at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts (2010). She has worked as production designer on internationally screened shorts, including Dance Mania Fantastic (2005), Aquarium (2007), and The Elephant Garden (2008). Maher's film work, influenced by her years as a modern dancer, explores the structural systems inherent in animation to extend the expressive potential of the human body. She currently has two animated films, Animus and Choros, in collaboration with filmmaker Michael Langan, in post-production.
