An Exchange of Neighborhood Knowledge
by Manhattan's Residents


A project by Jack Toolin



Jack Toolin is an artist whose work spans new media installation, digital imaging, and performance. He has worked both independently and as a member of the new media art collective C5, 1997 - 2007 (http://www.c5corp.com), which investigated our relationship to technology, and technology's relationship to culture through data visualization, installation, performance expedition, photography, and video. "The Perfect View" - part of C5's project "Landscape Initiative" - was shown as part of Rhizome's exhibition "Networked Nature" at Foxy Production last year, and will exhibit at the San Jose Museum of Art this fall. Toolin's individual and collaborative work has been exhibited around the Bay Area, nationally, and internationally at venues including San Francisco Camerawork; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, MN; the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2002 Whitney Biennial); and the Museo Nacional de Bellas Arte, Buenos Aires, Argentina. He is an adjunct professor of photography and media studies and has lectured widely at institutions such as the University of California at Berkeley; the San Francisco Art Institute; Emerson College (Boston, MA); Kibla Mulitmedia Center, Maribor, Slovenia; the Museum of Contemporary Art Rijeka, Croatia; and the University of Split, Croatia. He is an adjunct professor of digital media at the Rhode Island School of Design, Pratt Institute, and NYU Poly.
