Artist Talk by Jenn E Norton

Part of the Visiting Artist Lecture Series, co-presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery and Studio Art program, Department of Arts, Culture & Media

Jenn E Norton is an artist using time-based media to create immersive, experiential installations, using stereoscopic, interactive video, animation, augmented reality, sound, and kinetic sculpture. Often using video as a starting point within her process, her imaginative compositions use a combination of pre-cinema and contemporary display technologies, while exploring the blurring boundaries of virtual and physical realms. Norton's recent animations and augmented reality apps draw upon her interest in the ways in which information is exchanged between humans, technology, and as seen in her most recent solo exhibition in Montreal (ELLEPHANT|Art), plants. Current areas of research within Norton's practice explores the use of metaphor in physics as both a conceptual genesis, communicative device, poetic practice, and demonstrative application of technological and natural phenomena. She is currently a Ph.D. candidate in Visual Arts at York University and is an adjunct lecturer and postproduction technician in Film + Media Studies at Queen's University.
