Natalie Bookchin’s work explores some of the far-reaching consequences of Internet and digital technologies. Her video installations address the ramifications of mass connectivity and global flows of images on our identities, our desires, and the truths we tell about ourselves and the world. Exploring the relationship between so-called participatory culture and the public sphere, her installations investigate how the concepts of public space and identity are transformed in an era of ubiquitous connectivity and small screens. Her work is exhibited widely including at MoMa, LACMA, PS1, and the Whitney Museum. She has received numerous grants and awards, including from Creative Capital, the Guggenheim, and most recently, the MacArthur Foundation. Bookchin lives in Brooklyn and teaches media art at Rutgers University.
