Andrew Murdock


Andrew Murdock is an interdisciplinary artist whose work often bridges the tangible and digital by utilizing techniques in video, physical theater and puppetry. He holds a BFA from RISD, where he was a dual major in the Sculpture and Film/Animation/Video departments, and an MFA in theater from Sarah Lawrence College.

Murdock’s recent credits include work as technical director and performer for 9000 Paper Balloons (Japan Society, NYC), video and set designer for Tragedy: A Tragedy (Recovery Lounge, Upper Jay, NY), and video designer for Embodied (New Ohio, NYC). He is very excited to be the first visiting puppeteer at RISD for Wintersession 2024, where he will teach a puppetry course for students to draw from preexisting knowledge and explore inherent movement in materials to create original live puppet performances.
