Jett Strauss is the Studio Residency Recipient for January 1 - April 30, 2020

Jett Strauss (born 1989 in New York, NY) works across video, photo, and sculpture. He often ruminates on a memory from his childhood when his digital avatar fell to its death. With his buttocks and teeth clenched, he cracked his game controller in two with his bare hands. Today his work grows from the murk located between cyberspace and meatspace—which is to say, out of deep-seated emotional conflict. He holds a BFA from Tisch School of the Arts, NYU and an MFA from Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University. He teaches video and internet-based art practice at Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers.
