Artist and Associate Professor, Center for Digital Art and Experimental Media (DXARTS), University of Washington, Seattle, USA

James Coupe is an artist whose practice spans a broad range of media, platforms and sites, including installation, video, internet and public art. Making substantial use of face profiling and surveillance technologies, his work is concerned with questions of power, observation and visibility. Whether this means overlaying fictional narratives onto real-world events (recollector, 2007), algorithmically generating communities (Swarm, 2013), or hiring Mechanical Turk workers to document their working days (General Intellect, 2015), his interest is always in making visible people, places, systems and landscapes that for various reasons are hidden, ignored or unseen. Recent projects include commissions from the Toronto International Film Festival, the Henry Art Gallery, and the Abandon Normal Devices Festival. Read more...
