|Jenny is a lecturer at Massey University, School of Fine Arts, Wellington. She is also a co-director of SHOW, an artist-run project space in central Wellington. Jenny is an exhibiting artist using photographic and digital means to explore perceptions and expectations about reality. She employs strategies of collecting, collating, editing and re-presenting existing bodies of imagery. She is interested in how found images are as much about their subject matter as the intentions of the original image maker (or what we imagine those intentions to be). Employing digital technology as her primary means of production, Jenny’s installations are a reflection on the complex relationships people hold with their environment. She gained a Master of Fine Art Degree, Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology 1999 and a Diploma of Photography, Carrington Polytechnic, 1993.|
