Biography

Adriene Jenik is an artist and arts leader who resides in the southwest desert. Her computer and media art spans several decades including pioneering work in interactive cinema and live telematic performance. Her works combine "high" technology and human desire to propose new forms of literature, cinema, and performance.

She has taught a broad range of electronic media classes at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), UC Irvine, University of Southern California (USC), and UCLA's New Media Lab and UC San Diego where she was a full-time research faculty member in the Visual Arts Department for 11 years. A founding professor of the Interdisciplinary Computer Arts Major at UCSD and the Digital Culture program at ASU, Jenik has taught electronic and digital media to generations of students. She served as the Katherine K. Herberger endowed chair of Fine Arts and Director of the School of Art at Arizona State University, one of five schools that make up the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts from 2009-2016. She is currently a professor of intermedia at ASU and a Senior Sustainability Scientist in the Julie Ann Wrigley Global Institute of Sustainability.

Professor Jenik's artistic projects straddle and trouble the borders between art and popular culture. She was an early member of the Paper Tiger Television collective (1985-91) and a founding member of the Deep Dish TV Alternative Satellite network. Her video productions include the video short, "What's the Difference Between a Yam and a Sweet Potato?" (with J. Evan Dunlap), and the award-winning live satellite TV broadcast, "EL NAFTAZTECA: Cyber-Aztec TV for 2000 A.D." (with Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Roberto Sifuentes). "MAUVE DESERT: A CD-ROM Translation" is her internationally acclaimed interactive road movie based on the novel "Le Désert mauve" by French Canadian author Nicole Brossard. Her creative research project, DESKTOP THEATER (1997-2002), was a series of live theatrical interventions and activities in public visual chat rooms developed with multi-media maven Lisa Brenneis. She premiered her experimental narrative “SPECFLIC 1.9” (60:00, 2013) at the Scottsdale Museum of Contemporary Art. Her current research work in “data humanization” is in development.
