My urban futures

My urban future is : repurposed 

Alice Jarry is an artist, researcher and educator who specializes in site-specific responsive works, socio-environmental design, digital arts, tangible media, and community-oriented projects. Her research on residual matter brings concerns about sustainability, aesthetics, and politics to bear critically upon materiality, material production, and contemporary matters-of-concern regarding urban communities. With matter inseparable from both form and practice, her installation works examines how materiality - engaged in constant processes of transformation and circulation with sites, technology, and communities - can provoke the emergence of adaptive forms and resilient socio-environmental relations.

Alice Jarry’s work have been funded by SSHRC, FQRSC, and Hexagram. She is a member of Kheops - International research consortium on the governance of large infrastructure projects and Digital Arts Collective Perte De Signal (Montréal), Milieux Institute for Research-Creation (Concordia University) and Hexagram  (Montréal).

Her works have been presented at Vox Centre de l’image Contemporaine (Montréal),  Biennale Nemo (Paris), Leonardo Da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology (Milan), at Automata (Third International Digital Arts Biennial, Montreal), Le mois Multi (Quebec), Device_Art Triennale (Zagreb), Invisible Dog Art Center (New York), Le Manège de Sury as part of Mons 2015, European Capital of Culture (Mons), Physicalité (Second International Digital Arts Biennial, Montreal), La gare numérique (Jeumont), as part of the LASER series (Leonardo-Hexagram) and in several exhibition locations in Canada, the United States and Europe.
