Jeffrey Shaw

Jeffrey Shaw has been a leading figure in New Media Art since its earliest public-participation and expanded cinema paradigms in the late 60’s. His critically acclaimed art works have been exhibited at major museum and festivals throughout the world where he has pioneered and set benchmarks for the creative use of Interactive digital media technologies in the fields of expanded cinema, virtual and augmented reality, immersive visualization environments, navigable cinematic systems and interactive narrative.

Shaw’s numerous internationally exhibited and critically acclaimed artworks are milestones of technological and cultural innovation that have had seminal impact on the theory, design and application of digital media in art, society and industry. His artistic achievements are amongst the most cited in new media literature. They include Corpocinema (1969), Viewpoint (1975), the laser and slide shows for the GENESIS world tours in the mid 70’s, Legible City (1989), EVE (1993), PLACE‐Hampi (2006), T_Visionarium (2008) and Pure Land: Inside the Mogao Grottoes at Dunhuang (2012).

As the Founding Director of the ZKM Institute for Visual Media and the UNSW iCinema Research Centre, and as Dean of the CityU School of Creative Media, Shaw has had a profound impact on the practices of new media in contemporary art.
