Video, Sound, Emerging Media Art
Jason Bernagozzi is an artist whose work examines and critiques the codes embedded
within the psyche of media culture. His work uses the real-time features of video and
electronic media as a way to engage with interdisciplinary concepts as a dialogical system
of emerging languages. He is particularly interested in the potential of non-human agents as
collaborators in the artistic endeavor as a way to explore new concepts that exist outside
the sphere of human assumption and logic. Bernagozzi’s work has been supported through
numerous grants and awards from organizations such as the New York State Council for
the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts and has been exhibited nationally and
internationally at exhibitions such as the European Media Art Festival in Osnabruk,
Germany; the Festival Les Instants Vidéo Numériques et Poétiques in Marsaille, France;
the Ilman Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea and the Currents New Media Festival in
Santa Fe, New Mexico.
Jason is also a co-founder of the experimental media art non-profit organization Signal
Culture. Since 2014, Signal Culture has given residencies for over 260 artists, toolmakers
and researchers from 16 countries and 30 states. Bernagozzi sees Signal Culture as an
extension of his practice, facilitating the opportunity to hack, program and reimagine the
purpose of various technologies in a fluid, real-time studio that encourages cross
disciplinary investigation and a critical relationship to mass media. He is currently an
Associate Professor of Electronic Art at Colorado State University.
