John Slepian, Five College assistant professor of art and technology, received a B.F.A. in film and television from New York University and an M.F.A. in new genres from the San Francisco Art Institute.
His interactive installations, which feature projected and screen-based 3D computer animation, investigate what makes us feel engaged with other living beings.
Slepianís artwork has been shown at the Exploratorium and Catharine Clark Gallery in San Francisco, the Art Gallery at Siggraph06 in Boston, and P.S.1/MoMA and Hunter College Art Galleries in New York.
In 2002, he received the New Langton Arts Bay Area Award. He has been a resident in the P.S.1 National Studio Program, and in 2005 was awarded a New York Foundation for the Arts grant in Computer Arts.
Professor Slepian will be on sabbatical leave in spring 2014.
