Dee Hibbert Jones is an Artist and the Associate Professor Art & Digital Arts New Media (DANM) Co-Director The Hub: Social Practice Arts Research Center, UC Santa Cruz. Her recent work is an investigation in the ways thoughts, objects and external power systems combine to create our collective and individual realities. Dee is interested in the ways we struggle to feel in control and define our own experiences, and how frequently we are blind to our own devices and methods of escape. She creates objects, installations and environments that reflect, question and challenge ways of seeing and thinking. I’m interested in the ways that we use objects and ideas to define our experiences, how they function as mnemonic devices and as emotional props against insecure moments.
