Pamela Maurer is a Chicago-based multimodal performance artist specializing in music, videography, and experiential installations. Her work explores storytelling in 3D. For the past 15 years, She worked as a commercial artist: designing/fabricating environments for Lookingglass, Harpo Studios, Field Museum, Kehoe Designs, etc., simultaneously pursuing a career as a writer and performer, creating original music and music videos, and appearing on over a dozen albums.
As a result of Covid, all of her work has been on hold, so she’s been keeping herself busy creating an original visual album. The whole album is centered around love, dating, and quarantine from a feminist point of view, and explores the commercialization of ‘self,’ social media culture, and how our ‘real’ lives online and off can sometimes feel disparate. Pamela shot and edited the entire album by herself at home on her iPhone, which was an amazing experiment. As she got more comfortable making these videos, She invited other people to collaborate remotely, filming themselves as well, and that is how the whole album came to be. This piece is one of her favorites on the album. If you like what you hear, you can check out the whole album here.
