Jenn Karson CV
The subject of my work is Listening Architectures; it includes 2D works on paper, 3D rendering and modeling, installation and workshops. The most current work is the series, Dancing Stars.
Sound has always been Jenn Karson’s medium. Karson first became known around Burlington, VT in her twenties as the lead singer of the all-female alternative pop band Zola Turn, one of the best-known acts to come out of the Queen City in the 1990s. Now she’s an installation artist, a lecturer at the University of Vermont’s Department of Art, director of UVM’s digital fabrication lab and a co-founder of the art & technology collective Vermont Makers.
She exhibits work in museums, galleries and non-traditional places of display both nationally and internationally. She’s a frequent invited speaker on the subject of bridging art and technology and her art practice includes hosting participatory workshops. She received her MFA in Design + Technology from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2008 and her BA in Political Science from the University of Vermont.
Congratulations to graduating engineers and Fabbers Brianna, Carlo, Taylor and Claudia! Your contribution to the UVM FabLab over the past few years will be remembered and…Ouch! We will miss you.
