Artist Profile - Justin Lincoln
Justin Lincoln (b. 1973, Okinawa, Japan ) is a digital artist who makes videos exploring how online culture has conditioned us to read and visually scan images and texts in new ways. His work is informed by the open source programming language Processing, social media, cybernetic theory, and the history of avant-garde music, literature, and fine art. His videos have screened internationally, including Punto Y Raya Festival , FILE Festival (Brazil), The Chicago Underground Film Festival, Dallas Videofest, and projects at CICA Museum in South Korea. He is currently an associate professor of art at Whitman College in Walla Walla, WA.
Justin received GAP funding to support his project, “Curious Data/ Arpeggios, an attempt to improve the production level of my art videos, particularly in their sound production. Justin uses synthesizers, samplers, drum machines, and sequencers to create sounds that trigger effects on video images. Many of those sound devices include some type of arpeggiator that takes a sequence of notes and loops their sequence in real-time. This funding will help him master the sound for his videos.
