Jon Chambers

Professor of Practice


MFA, New Media Art, University of Illinois at Chicago


Jon Chambers has shown work nationally and internationally, in screening venues, galleries and online including the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, the Athens Digital Arts Festival in Athens, Greece, Powrplnt in NYC, and #Programa La Plaza in Madrid, Spain. He has held residencies at the p5.js Contributors Conference, the International Museum of Surgical Science, and the Media Archeology Lab. He has taught courses on games, data visualization, creative coding for the internet, and physical computing.

His art explores the often contradictory and uncanny ways in which networked technology affects our lives, while speculating on spaces where we as users can imagine alternative realities to larger corporatized data feedback loops. 3D representations of the body in various states of resolution are often featured in projects to highlight a fractured sense of self as we traverse between physical and virtual worlds.
