Jillian Mayer is an artist and filmmaker living in Miami, FL. Through videos, sculptures, online experiences, photography, performances, and installations, Mayer explores how technology affects our lives, bodies, and identities by processing how our physical world and bodies are impacted and reshaped by our participation in a digital landscape. Her work investigates the points of tension between our online and physical worlds, and attempts to inhabit the increasingly porous boundary between the two. Her artwork encompasses a consistent thread that models how to subvert capitally-driven modes of technological innovation, calling into focus ideas of value, dependency, adaptation, and communication.
