James Patrick Cox – MA/MFA

My practice is concerned with the struggle of language and takes the form of performances, video, sound, and installations. I’m interested in the process of getting information in and out of one’s head, and what is lost and gained in this process. My work also looks at the anxiety that comes from this process, and how anxiety is a generative energy to produce. Recently, my work plays with the boundaries of language technologies, such as dictation and auto correct. This work explores how our interactions with these technologies can settle and unsettle our physical and emotional states.
