    Alice Jarry is an artist-researcher and professor of Design and Computation Arts at Concordia University, Montreal, Canada. She specializes in site-specific responsive works, sci-art practices, socio-environmental design, and tangible media. Her research brings concerns about sustainability, aesthetics, and politics to bear critically upon materiality and urban infrastructure. Her current works focuses on residual matter and smart and biomaterials for the built environment. She examines how materiality – engaged in processes of transformation with site, technology, and communities – can provoke the emergence of adaptive forms and resilient socio-environmental relations.

    She is the director of Milieux Institute’s Speculative Life Biolab and member of the Canada Excellence Research Chair in Next Generation Cities (Concordia); Kheops – International Consortium on the Governance of Large Infrastructure Projects; Hexagram – International Network dedicated to Research-Creation in Media Arts, Design, Technology and Digital Culture; Topological Media Lab, the Living Architecture Systems Group, and collective Perte-de-Signal. Her works have been presented – among other locations – at Centre George Pompidou (Paris), Vox (Montréal), Biennale Nemo (Paris), Leonardo Da Vinci Museum of Science and Technology (Milan), International Digital Arts Biennial (Montreal), Device_Art Triennale (Zagreb), Invisible Dog Art Center (New York), and Mons 2015, European Capital of Culture (Mons).
