Dr. Kris Paulsen
Assistant Professor of Film, Video and New Media, History of Art DepartmentThe Ohio State University
Kris Paulsen is Assistant Professor of Contemporary Art, Film, Video and New Media at The Ohio State University. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Berkeley in 2009. She studies contemporary art with a specialization in time-based media. In particular, her work traces the history of technology in the arts and the rhetoric of "new media” from photography to computational art. Her current research addresses artistic engagements with television and experiments with telepresence. Drawing on psychoanalytic theory, film theory, and semiotics, she examines the phenomenological and epistemological effects of technologies on space, time and bodily presence. She is currently working on two book manuscripts, "Mass Medium: Artists' Television 1965 to the Present" and "Real Time over Real Space: Telepresence and Contemporary Art."
