Joelle Fleurantin is an artist and researcher in a committed relationship with her computer. Her work explores this often functional, sometimes dysfunctional union. At Flux, she will continue her current project, Patchworked Venus, a body created to examine how computing has given birth to a new form of sexual intimacy. She has presented her work at the NYC Media Lab Summit, Facets Conference, and Mozilla Festival. Joelle received a Master’s from the Interactive Telecommunications Program at New York University and studied art history and film at Yale University and Brooklyn College respectively.
