Jeff Thompson: Impossible in Another Form

New Media

  • August 25, 2014 - September 19, 2014

Fine Arts Gallery

With the use of computers, smartphones, and other digital devices, data is pervasive in our society. Jeff Thompson's work takes a divergent spin on data visualization by using technology to create art that is non-utilitarian and does not seek to prove hypotheses or provide answers to complex problems.  Instead, Thompson’s investigation using cultural and personally derived data, and various digital structures, results in work that is more poetic in nature and seeks to participate in interdisciplinary cultural critiques of the value of information. Currently, Thompson is an Assistant Professor and Program Director of Visual Art and Technology at the Stevens Institute of Technology in New Jersey.

Artist Lecture and Reception: Sept. 10, 1:30 pm
