The candidate will work in both the College and Graduate School of Art, teaching studios, seminars, and advising graduate students on ideas and practices in evolving technologies and new media. We seek an artist whose work incorporates new technologies and new thinking from a wide range of visual, spatial, sound, and material practices.
