Jack Stenner synthesizes culture, hardware and software to create conceptual work taking forms such as networked installation and experimental cinema. His work explores how ideology, power and material conditions coalesce through technology to produce tangible effects on our lives. Social and economic inequality, climate change, racism, war and hunger are symptomatic of the failure of ideological and material power structures inadequate to our contemporary needs. As his work Open House demonstrates, ideology is manifest through technology and has tangible implications. To enact change we must question our core assumptions and create new institutions that support well-being and a just society.
