    Kris Paulsen is As­sis­tant Pro­fes­sor of Con­tem­po­rary Art, Film, Video and New Media in the His­tory of Art De­part­ment and Pro­gram in Film Stud­ies at The Ohio State Uni­ver­sity. She stud­ies con­tem­po­rary art with a spe­cial­iza­tion in time-based media. In par­tic­u­lar, her work traces the his­tory of tech­nol­ogy in the arts and the rhetoric of “new media” from pho­tog­ra­phy to com­pu­ta­tional art. Her cur­rent re­search ad­dresses artis­tic en­gage­ments with tele­vi­sion and ex­per­i­ments with telep­res­ence. Draw­ing on psy­cho­an­a­lytic the­ory, film the­ory, and semi­otics, she ex­am­ines the phe­nom­e­no­log­i­cal and epis­te­mo­log­i­cal ef­fects of tech­nolo­gies on space, time and bod­ily pres­ence. Ad­di­tion­ally, Pro­fes­sor Paulsen is in­ter­ested in the legal and philo­soph­i­cal stakes of forgery, reen­act­ment, ap­pro­pri­a­tion, and copy­right in the dig­i­tal age. She is cur­rently work­ing on two book man­u­scripts, “Mass Medium: Artists’ Tele­vi­sion 1965 to the Pre­sent” and “Real Time over Real Space: Telep­res­ence and Con­tem­po­rary Art”.
