Jenny Harp: Comprehensions and Shifts in Matter

Jenny Harp: Comprehensions and Shifts in Matter


Jenny Harp, winner of Wonder Fair's 2013 Print Invitational, returns to Lawrence this August with a new body of work synthesizing the realms of traditional and digital printmaking.

The artist explains: 
"I remember the day my dad brought home our first computer. From that point forward my time was split between exploring nature and exploring a new digital world beyond the screen. My current work focuses on interactions and collaborations with the computer. In a quasi-scientific fashion I build, investigate, collect and archive virtual worlds using traditional print methods and digital media.

Rough Comprehensions and Shifts in Matter weaves together matrix-based information systems-both analog and digital. A merging of past and future creates a semi-fictional and experimental universe that emerges bit by bit."

About the Artist:

A native of Northern California, Jenny currently lives and works in Iowa City Iowa, where she is an MFA candidate at the University of Iowa. When not making prints or creating alternate digital universes, she can be found building forts, baking or throwing sticks for her dog Oscar.
