Joel S. Kollin
Joel Kollin is a Ph.D. student at the University of Washington’s Digital Art and Experimental Media (DXARTS) program, where he is developing an artistic agenda which utilizes immersion and perception at the extremes of sensory awareness to examine the interplay between identity, memory, surveillance, and empathy in an increasingly dissociative, media-centric world. His recent interests include fully immersive installations, environmental sound, synthaesthesia, and systems art where humans form a critical part in a network of complex emergent behavior. Prior to arriving at DXARTS Mr Kollin worked primarily in the field of display technology for 17 years. He holds several key patents on personal, holographic, and autostereoscopic displays as well as many derivative patents.
