& Media at the University of Colorado, Denver. Carpenter has produced, directed, and edited award winning experimental and documentary pieces. Her work consists of two distinct styles of art making: traditional narrative video and experimental video documentary. She draws from personal experiences to develop documentaries, experimental single-channel videos, or video installations that encourage discourse on difficult subject matters, including the Fourmile fire, domestic violence, women’s body issues, breast cancer, and Alzheimer’s.
