About the Artist

Jordan Shaw is an artist and creative technologist who received his MFA from OCAD University’s Digital Futures program. He has been internationally exhibited in Australia, USA, and Canada. His work spans mediums ranging from strictly digital and algorithmically generated to interactive physical environments and installations. Through his work, he explores themes relating to the influence of technology in culture and the predefined expectations society has about their relationship with computers, technology, and the future. These ideas often manifest themselves by exposing the hidden and unseen aspects of the technology and the digital environment around us. This happens by trying to visualize the hidden interactions between people, technology, data collection methods and the digital systems that exist in our world.
