Lana Z Caplan works across media, including single-channel films or videos in essay form, interactive installations, video art and photography. In many of her works, the technology itself – digitally generated realities, landscape referent projections, historic photo processes, internet images, multi-channel or interactive installations – is used to comment on itself and transform its subject.

Other notable exhibitions and festivals include Edinburgh International Film Festival (Edinburgh, Scotland), L’Alternativa Independent Film Festival (Barcelona), Anthology Film Archives (NY, NY), Chicago Underground Film Festival, Montreal Underground Film Festival, Antimatter [media art] (Victoria, BC), Alchemy Film and Moving Image Festival (Scotland), Currents New Media Festival (Santa Fe), Museum of Contemporary Art Tucson, Inside Out Art Museum (Beijing), National Gallery (San Juan, PR), Experiments in Cinema (Albuquerque), Museo Tamayo Arte Contemporáneo (Mexico City), Havana Film Festival.
