Biography: Jack Stenner synthesizes culture, hardware and software to create conceptual work taking forms such as networked installation and experimental cinema. He is Associate Professor of Art + Technology at the University of Florida. His work investigates our sociocultural conceptions of “reality” by looking at forms and means with which ideology is embedded, particularly how meaning is manipulated and transcoded in “place.” To this end, his work explores hybrid subjectivity and the “grammatization” of human action. Using electronic media, he encourages us to reconsider what we think we know about our world and imagine an alternative utopia.
