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.
