algorithmic perceptions

Jenny Rodenhouse (b. Tulsa OK 1984) is a creative, research based practice that blurs voyeurism and contemplation to examine the visual languages encoded in autonomous cameras. She is interested in the camera’s algorithmic ability to make conspiring connections, develop deep fixations, and form absurdist interactions within its seemingly familiar field of view. She examines this point of view through patterned installations, seamed sites, and convoluted-collaged services made up of networked associations turned proposed visual design systems. 


Jenny is Assistant Professor, teaching for Undergraduate Interaction Design Department and Graduate Media Design Practices, and Director of the Immersion Lab at ArtCenter College of Design, a space that advances art and design research, and making through emergent technological mediums.

Jenny holds a MFA degree from ArtCenter College of Design and Bachelors in Industrial & Interaction Design from Syracuse University (5-yr program).

She has been a Jury Chair for Core77 Design Awards, Fellow at Nature, Art, & Habitat Residency in Sottochiesa Italy, a Postgraduate Research Fellow at Media Design Practices ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena California, a designer and researcher at Microsoft Research, Xbox, and Windows Phone Advanced Development in Seattle Washington.

While at Microsoft she worked on the first Windows Phone platform, explored the future of transmedia entertainment, prototyped emerging gestural interactions, designed and shipped the Xbox 2011 interface, and explored cross-platform social experiences for Microsoft Research and Xbox Live. 

Her work has been shown at Die Digitale, Venice Architecture Biennial, DDDD, Spring Break Art Show, FEMMEBIT, Navel, Roger’s Office Gallery, IxDA 2019, The Swiss Architecture Museum; Architektur Galerie Berlin; BODY and the Anthropocene; the Bi-City Biennale of Urbanism / Architecture; Architecture + Design Museum; Open City Art City Festival at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; Post-Internet Cities Conference; The Graduate Center for Critical Studies; KAM Workshops: Artificial Natures; and CHI.
