Jordan Crandall

Jordan Crandall (US) is a media artist and theorist.

Jordan Crandall is a media artist, theorist, and performer, and a Professor in the Visual Arts Department at University of California, San Diego.  He is the 2011 winner of the Vilém Flusser Theory Award for outstanding theory and research-based digital arts practice, given by the Transmediale in Berlin in collaboration with the Vilém Flusser Archive of the University of Arts, Berlin. His video installations, presented in numerous exhibitions worldwide, combine formats and genres deriving from cinematic and military culture, exploring new regimes of power and their effects on subjectivity, sociality, embodiment, and desire.  His work probes into the realms of extreme intimacy, where techniques of control combine with techniques of the self.  He writes and lectures regularly at various institutions across the US and Europe, and is the founding editor of the new journal VERSION. 

His current project, UNMANNED, is a blend of performance art, political theater, philosophical speculation, and intimate reverie.  It explores new ontologies of distributed systems, and the status of masculinity in a militarized landscape increasingly dependent on automated technology. Unmanned will be performed at V2_ as part of Festival Wereld van Witte de With, September 14/15/16 2012.
