Dr Chris Jones is Director of Graduate Studies. In his prior role, he led the development of Emily Carr's Low Residency Master of Applied Arts program.
Chris's PhD research at University of Westminster, London theorized the experience of new media in art. His interests extend from the histories of the image as an aesthetic and political discourse. He writes and lectures on the concept of methodology in art as a step toward a non-disciplinary epistemology that recognizes art knowledge.
Chris's art practice is rooted in photography. Addressing the medium as a primary form of technical image-making, he explores its inherent questions about time and space by composing performative lectures that guide audiences through a sequence of "deep-res" pictures. Vignettes of video, music, and spoken word are combined in a narrative form that appeals to poem, essay, and film. His work has been exhibited internationally.
