Steiner Invitation Series Speaker
Lee Blalock is a Chicago based artist and educator presenting alternative and hyphenated states of being through technology-mediated processes. Interested in how technologies support the idea of impossible anatomies, behaviors and performances, the work is an exercise in body modification by way of amplified behavior or “change-of-state”. Blalock also works under the moniker of L^2, whose most recent live work embraces noise and fissure as a natural state of being for bodies living in hybrid states. Blalock, an Assistant Professor in the Art and Technology Studies Department at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, spoke to the students in Prof. Lindsey French’s section of Electronic Media Studio: Introduction to Interactivity.
