Jessica Gomula-Kruzic
Professor of Video & Time Based Media
California State University Stanislaus

My visual arts research explores the relationship between the immediate environment, the audience, and the artist, as interactive media and DIY culture continues to blur those relationships. My goal is to create collaborative intermedia artwork in diverse public spaces, which addresses socially-consciousness subject matter.
