TORONTO WEARABLES MEETUP 07: JEREMY BAILEY
Friday August 19th, 2016

Jeremy Bailey is Toronto-based "famous New Media artist" who doesn't travel alone to when giving artist talks -- he brings his virtual self, too.  Using object recognition techniques in software programs which he writes, Jeremy extends and builds upon his body in virtual space.  He adorns himself with jewellery and accessories and transforms his appendages sculptural forms, assembling and disassembling himself in crude ways. "Powered by humor and computer vision, his work wryly critiques the uneasy relationship between technology and the body while playfully engaging the protocols of digital media" (Greg J Smith, Rhizome).

His work has been featured in numerous exhibitions and festivals internationally including recent exhibitions at Tate Liverpool, The Nam June Paik Art Center in South Korea, the Zero01 San Jose Biennial, and NIMk in Amsterdam. He received his MFA in Art Media Studies from Syracuse University in 2006.
