Jack Stenner


Member Since January 1, 1996

Jack Stenner is an artist who has worked with technology, video, and installation since the mid 1990s. He is an Assistant Professor of Art + Technology at the University of Florida, School of Art and Art History. His work addresses issues related to our socio-culturally constructed "reality" and the ways we create meaning. He is interested in “place” and how meaning is embedded, manipulated and transcoded in the environment. His work explores the construction of a “hybrid subject”; a subject that is neither entirely human nor machinic. Combining techniques from information retrieval and visualization, content analysis, video gaming, computer vision and experimental video, he seeks to create experiences that encourage us to reconsider what we think we know about our world, and imagine an alternative utopia.

He holds a Bachelors of Environmental Design, a Masters of Science in Visualization, and a Ph.D in Architecture with emphasis in Computer Visualization from Texas A&M University. He worked with artists in the context of an alternative art space he founded in Houston, Texas, for almost 10 years. His work has been exhibited nationally and internationally, at venues including Siggraph, ACM Multimedia, International Society of Electronic Artists (ISEA), ZeroOne Biennial, Alternative Museum, Museum of Modern Art, Toluca, Mexico, Polk Museum of Art,Tampa Museum of Art, and others.
