2016 Nohl Fellow Jesse McLean’s creative work and research are motivated by a deep curiosity regarding human behavior and relationships, especially with and arising through media and technology. A primary focus of all her work is a consideration of both the power and the failure of the media to bring people together, and the ways emotions are lived in an age of mediated experience. Her talk will include an overview of her collagist video art practice, with particular attention to recent projects. These are inspired by the fraught relationships people have with computers, a technology we both rely on and resent.
