Jennifer Revit was born in Queens, New York then moved to a small farming community outside of Omaha, Nebraska when she was 6. After elementary school, her family relocated to Southern California where she spent her adolescence. Upon graduating from the University of Denver with a degree in Art History and minors in Religious Studies and Business, Jennifer moved to Los Angeles where she worked in galleries then earned an MFA from UCLA in Set Design. Rather than attending graduation she went to NYC to find a place to live and during the summer of 2001 she relocated to Brooklyn and lived there for 11 years. Early in 2006 while exploring an empty lot in Long Island City she was inspired to document the experience and has since been making videos. Her freelance job, a passion for early modern architecture and the love of spacious movie theaters brought her back to Los Angeles where she currently resides.
