About the artist

Jack Stenner is an artist who utilizes techniques from ubiquitous and physical computing, game technologies, and experimental software to create conceptual work often taking forms such as installation, network practices, or experimental video. His is an Assistant Professor of Art + Technology in the School of Art + Art History at the University of Florida.


Artist’s Statement:

Jack's work addresses issues related to our socio-culturally constructed "reality." He is interested in the forms and means with which ideology is embedded, particularly how meaning is manipulated and transcoded in "place." To this end, his work explores the construction of a "hybrid subject;" a subject neither entirely human nor machinic.
