Hi! My name is Jon and I'm based in Chicago where I teach media literacy, media art histories, net art, new media art (software + hardware) and video at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, University of Illinois at Chicago and Northwestern University. I have shown work nationally and internationally, in screening venues, galleries and online. My full CV can be found here.
Contemporary life is inseparable from technology and my work responds to experiences of saturation, obsessions and often humorous contradictions that emerge from our relationships with virtuality and remoteness. I'm particularly interested in how we negotiate the duality of our digital and physical bodies within networked systems of consumerism, identity and future histories. Endearing and uncanny feelings in the work urge us to consider the streamlined technological interfaces (both hardware and software) we encounter everyday and where those interactions start to break down.
Please feel free to contact me: jon (at) jonchambers.net and links to my various social media accounts can be found above.
