BIO: Joellyn Rock is an Associate Professor of Art and Design at the University of Minnesota Duluth. She teaches a range of digital art and video classes. Her creative work includes digital print, interactive narrative, and experimental video. Revisiting fairy tales and myth, Rock seeks new ways to tell old tales. Rock collaborates with colleagues in the Motion and Media Across Disciplines Lab, investigating how emerging media is reshaping the ways that stories can be told. Interactive installations such as Sophronia Project, Fishnetstockings, and Salt Immortal Sea provide participatory space and multiple modes for the audience to play in the story. Rock’s multimedia projects have been included in Northern Spark at the Walker Arts Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Hybridity and Synesthesia at Lydgalleriet, Bergen, Norway, and Electronic Literature Festival at Mosteiro de São Bento da Vitória, Porto, Portugal.
