Jess Loseby
Since the beginning
Works in United States of America

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 (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.

not sure if you are being sarcastic (?) but if not, you can do this already btw
- unless you mean maintaining interactivity which would be cool.



Re: Rhizome Commissions: Voting starts

Hi Pall,

Well you can (and you did:) in the same way I could rename this thread "knee-jerk
reaction" but that wouldn't be fair eh?

I think I spent about 11/2 hours looking through the submission which I think is about
right at this stage in the selection for one who is an member but not "super". I yawned
at the use texts in many of abstracts not at the amount of them. I did find there was an
overt preference to mapping projects which I don't think reflects a trend within the field
but a tendency to repeat successful projects. This helped me to limit my attention to
abstracts/ websites which suggested innovative or new ways of working. The six I
selected, in my view, did.
I'm not being negative, I just wondered about the selection process of other users, and
wether my arch-bitch tendencies had made me overtly critical as I was surprised that I
only supported 6. Annie's post suggested not - yours suggests yes, I guess.



Re: Rhizome Commissions: Voting starts

just gone through the submissions for this years commissions. I would be interested to
know what proportion of the submissions people approve....??

I must have approved about 6

does that make me discerning or arch-bitch - (rhetorical - I know:).

I tried to look at as much and be as fair as possible but I admit after the first 15 anything
with the word "mapping" or whose abstract looked like it had been written by curt's
"market-o-matic" went into auto-no. *yawn*

how about you?


Eating Canvas:

Due to Furtherfields' (and the HTTP website) current technical and health mutiny, some
of you may have missed the release of "eating canvas" at the new HTTP gallery in
London. The show is still on until the 27th of March but in case it is too late for you to
get there (or for others outside of the UK) its net "sister" is on:

There is also a brief video to give you a glimpse of the work at HTTP.

[I recommend papier-mache on TVs to physically layer digital video - very satisfying:)]
