[ISEA2006] Artist Talk: Jody Zellen – Ghosts Cities

Artist Statement

Jody Zellen will present her recent interactive installations. In her work she explores architectural spaces as well as digital spaces, making projects that are both site specific and unexpected. Her works mirror the experience of navigating a charged metropolitan area. Through a bombardment of disparate images her pieces celebrate the complexity and unpredictability of urban space. A walk through the city becomes a vehicle for a meditation on space, time, and human interaction. Interested in the patterns, structure and design of the urban environment, rather than document the cities she sees, she employs media-generated representations of contemporary and historic cities as raw material for aesthetic and social explorations.

  • Jody Zellen (born 1961, Boston, Massachusetts, United States) is a Los Angeles-based artist whose practice involves digital art, painting, video art and drawing.
