Shannon Spanhake

Shannon Spanhake’s work takes the form of public interventions and tangible media installations. It investigates the transformative potential of new technologies and reconfigured social ecologies to address issues embedded within information politics, popular culture, and geographic/cultural territory. An important part of Spanhake’s artistic strategy is to enable public discourse by providing access to information through the development of alternate modes of articulation in the production of knowledge.

Spanhake is a post-doctoral researcher at The California Institute of Telecommunications and Information Technology, she received her M.F.A in Visual Arts from the University of California, San Diego. She began her studies with a B.Sc. in Electrical Engineering at Drexel University, Philadephia PA, and went on to receive a B.F.A. from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Spanhake is the co-founder of Lui Velazaquez, an art space in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico and is also the founder of the collective, the Department of Ecological Authoring Tactics (DoEAT). Her work has been presented throughout the US, notably at the Getty Center in Los Angeles and at Museum of Modern Art in New York. She has recently completed a book titled, Tijuana: A Fantasy of Absolute Place and is the principal investigator of a project to monitor air pollution using mobile phones.
