Stephanie Rothenberg uses performance, video, and net-based media to create interactive situations that question relationships between individuals and socially constructed identities, lifestyles and public spaces. Referencing corporate models and their infrastructures, her work merges popular forms of advertising and market research with participatory experiences involving role-playing and fantasy. Stephanie received her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and her work has been exhibited in numerous media festivals and galleries in the US and abroad. Stephanie commutes between New York City and Buffalo, New York where she is Assistant Professor of Communication Design at the State University of New York at Buffalo. While at Eyebeam, she will be working on the project “The School of Perpetual Training,” which explores the intersections between physical labor in the real world and the immaterial labor of the virtual sweatshops that have emerged over the past five years in the online gaming industry. http://www.pan-o-matic.com/
