Artist & researcher Dr. Alice Jarry is the Associate Director of Milieux and the Director of the Milieux ‘Speculative Life’ BioLab. She is the Concordia University Research Chair in Critical Practices in Materials and Materiality and Assistant Professor in Design and Computation Arts.
Alice specializes in site-specific responsive works, socio-environmental design, digital arts, tangible media, and community-oriented projects. Her research brings concerns about sustainability, aesthetics, and politics to bear critically upon materiality, material production, and contemporary matters-of-concern regarding urban communities and infrastructures. With matter inseparable from both form and practice, her installation work examines how materiality – engaged in constant processes of transformation and circulation with site, technology, and communities – can provoke the emergence of adaptive forms and resilient socio-environmental relations.
