Natalie Jeremijenko (US) is an artist with a background in biochemistry, physics, neuroscience and precision engineering.
Natalie Jeremijenko is the director of the environmental health
clinic at NYU, assistant professor in Art, and affiliated with the
Computer Science Department. She is also a visiting professor at Royal College of Art, in
London and an artist not-in-residence at the Institute for the Future
in Palo Alto. She was
recently named one of the 40 most influential designers by I.D.
Natalie Jeremijenko’s projects explore socio-technical change: her work is described as experimental design, hence xDesign, as it
explores opportunities presented by new technologies for non-violent
social change. Her research centers on structures of participation in
the production of knowledge and information, and the political and
social possibilities (and limitations) of information and emerging
technologies — mostly through public experiments. In this vein, her
work spans a range of media from statistical indices to biological substrates to robotics.
Natalie Jeremijenko participated in the LIFE & ART 1: TransAgriculture event on December 19, 2008.
