MadMapper: Tell us about yourself?

Jeanne: I’ve been making X media for about 16 years (X = web, graphic, digital, video, interactive, multi, trans, creative, etc.) I got my first job as a Web Designer in High School, and I think I’ve always been on this path; of playing and making things with visual and digital mediums, and working with technology. I fell in love with projectors in college, and started VJing and making visuals at parties and collaborating with other artists that I met, who were also always making or performing with visuals or sound. I’m thankful for all the amazing people I’ve met over the years who inspire and challenge me to keep making. I’ve been working as a hands-on producer of exhibit media at NYHS for 3.5 years, and I’ve found it super rewarding and have learned a lot about developing the narrative.
