These have aired on PBS nationwide and were featured in festivals such as the Toronto Film Festival, The World-Wide Video Festival in The Hague, and Video Roma in Italy.
Harrison has received numerous honors, including a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and the GoldApple/1st Prize from the Athens Film and Video Festival. She is founding director of the new Arts & Technology program at Stevens Institute in Hoboken, New Jersey and creative consultant for Granary Books.
