Robison’s immersive installation showcases new work in an experimental audio/visual arrangement. Images, objects, sounds and other phenomena are pushed to new interpretations as they wander between physical and digital reference points.
Jean Robison is an interdisciplinary multimedia artist. Working primarily in video, the internet and social practice. Her work includes experimental websites, animation, digitally manipulated paintings, photography and performance. Robison’s work reinterprets artifacts of mass media to explore how consciousness and perception are shaped by pre-digested imagery and information generally brought to us by the web, movies and television. Often infused with an unlikely mix of gravity and humor, her work embodies a hybrid sensibility that utilizes a variety of media to explore popular culture as well as the mechanical devices of information delivery like cameras, screens and the printed surface.
Robison’s outlook on art-making is highly motivated by interactivity and engagement. Whether through a computer screen as in her online and digital work or large-scale public engagement as with social practice projects, her work offers a disposition of intimacy rather than intimidation.
