BIO
Jess Loseby is a digital artist from the UK whose main medium is the internet. Her work ranges from small and intimate online installationsto large scale digital projections and video. In a relatively brief time, her work has become known internationally such as the ‘cyber-kitchen’ (lead artist and co-curator) and ‘the Digital Pocket’ (lead artist and co-curator), which is currently listed in the Whitney Artport. In August 2003, she became the first virtual artist in residence at Furtherfield.org (FurtherStudio) one of the first virtual artists residencies of its kind. She has exhibited in digital festivals such as the Split Film Festival, Pixxelpoint 2003, FILE 2003 and the Stuttgart Filmwinter. In 2003 she created interactive digital sets for the production of ‘The Dadaists’ at The Met Theater in Hollywood. Also in 2003 she was also awarded a grant from the Daniel Langlois Foundation, with the resulting work 'views from the ground floor...' being currently exhibited internationally.

Thematically, her projects continue her fascination with borderlands and ‘beautiful seams’ between the ubiquitous worlds of computing and the ‘real’ (domestic). A staunch opponent of new media's absorption with VR, her on and offline installations create flows and streams in the relational space of art and technology. Loseby’s unashamedly low-tech approach to new media build comparisons of the network and digitally (in its frustrations, attention to triviality and repetition) as absurdly compatible to the female domestic routine.

Jess Loseby has 3 children, 2 wheels, 1 husband and 0 days off.

Re: Question for artists who seek commissions


I generally prefer open commissions themes, as usually I have to
slightly sledge-hammer my ideas to fit themes. Arguably this is down to
the gap I perceive in what curators look for (in terms of a curatorial
thematics) for shows and what is actually the wide reaching thematics
net (and digital) artists. I find it slightly depressing that curators feel that
only certain themes 'sell' a show and others don't - it shows a lack of
trust/faith in the artists. I must admit to stifling a yawn when I read the
theme for the rhizome commission (for example) was games. It not that
there isn't fantastic work being done in this area, but it (as a thematic) is
so unrepresentative of the diverse ideas currently explored by net
artists. I worry that high profile commissions sticking to these 'safe'
areas simply re-enforce the (misguided) notion that net (digital) art is
simply PS2's slightly eccentric sister. o

copy of my latest blagging letter in the remote chance that someone has a nice dark wall and a couple of quid going spare....


UK net artist Jess Loseby is seeking gallery opportunities to exhibit her digital
installation 'views from the ground floor...'

Created with the generous support of the Daniel Langlois Foundation, the artwork has
two dimensions. The gallery installation consists of both an interactive touch-screen
projection and a video projected against a plaster and straw, life-sized sculpture. The
second installation is internet based (http://www.viewsfromthegroundfloor.com) and has
already been exhibited as an online installation in galleries and festivals such as
Pixxelpoint 2003, Slovenia and the 17th Stuttgart Filmwinter, Germany.

Jess Loseby has
3 children
2 wheels
1 husband
0 money.
