Jon Chambers (EVVE Studio)

Jon Chambers is an artist and educator based in Chicago. He received an MFA in New Media Art from the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC) in 2012 and currently teaches media histories at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and information aesthetics at UIC. He has shown work nationally and internationally. Chambers’s work focuses on the production of art through technological objects, software, and networked interfaces while aestheticizing experiences of saturation, obsessions, and contradictions that emerge from relationships with these technologies. He often deals with playful or humorous themes and am interested in the ephemeral space of technological experiences and interactions. He uses a range of mediums that merge media archaeological and art histories with contemporary topics and practices.
