Tiffany Funk (Ph.D. ABD) is an artist and art historian living in Chicago, Illinois. She develops work that explores technological intervention in biology though traditional and digital practices, alternately taking the form of critical and conceptual writing, drawing, software, video, and installation. Funk’s current work explores our present and historical relationship with software in order to make visible the disruptions and distortions inherent in our technologically-mediated ‘human’ interactions and critically analyze our preconceived notions of autonomy. She received her MFA in 2012 from the University of Illinois at Chicago in New Media Arts, and has shown in galleries and media festivals in the U.S. and abroad. Currently she is researching and writing her dissertation focusing on John Cage and Lejaren Hiller’s HPSCHD (1967-1969) and its legacy in generative software art.
