Jennifer Stock (b. 1980, Indianapolis) is an audiovisual artist based in Brooklyn, NY. Her work centers around illusionistic landscapes and environments, "transform[ing] nearly recognizable figures into dancing geometrical patterns and ghostly apparitions." (Steve Smith, New York Times) Her installations and live performances combine instrumental music, video, and field recordings via custom-designed software.
She recently released her debut audiovisual album, En Plein Air, as part of the Roulette Concert Series in October 2010. Collaborative work includes live video for ensembles Threefifty Duo and Victoire and laptop performances with noise/folk band Oliphant. She has performed and presented work at the White Box Gallery, Chelsea Art Museum, the Tank, Joe's Pub, Galapagos Arts Space, Merkin Hall, the Flea Theater, and on the River to River Festival. In 2011 she received a grant from the Jerome Foundation to research outsider architecture.
Jennifer received a B.A. in Music and English from Yale in 2003, where she received the 2001 Cole Porter Fellowship for Music and Theater. She is currently a Chancellor's Fellow at the CUNY Graduate Center.
Other interests include poetry and vintage postcards.
