    Amy Hicks teaches digital media with an emphasis on conceptual video art, stop-motion animation and pre-cinematic motion studies. Prior to her arrival at the University of Delaware, Hicks lectured at University of California Berkeley, Stanford University, San Francisco Art Institute and California College of the Arts.

    Hicks' videos often explore transformation: fluctuating states of becoming, an engineer's blueprint, visions of the future, scientific experiments, cinematic transitions, and the creative process that translates an idea to something tangible. Trained in photography, she began making experimental work with film, video, and analog/digital combinations in 1999. Her award-winning films and videos such as the dystopic Hatching Beauty and abstract Suspended Series have appeared in museums, galleries, and film festivals around the globe from California to New York and Poland to France including the Ann Arbor Film Festival (MI), Pacific Film Archive (CA), Henry Art Museum (WA), New Langton Arts (CA), the Musee d' Art Moderne et Contemporain (Strassbourg, FR), diRosa Preserve: Art and Nature (CA), San Francisco International Film Festival (CA), Hosfelt Gallery (CA), and Southern Exposure (CA) among others. Her collaborative work has been included in group shows at The LAB (CA) and the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council (NY).
