Natalie Jeremijenko is Director of the xDesign Environmental Health Clinic at New York University's Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development, where she is an assistant professor in Art, and affiliated with the Computer Science Department. She is also a visiting professor at the Royal College of Art in London, England and an artist not-in-residence at the Institute for the Future in Palo Alto, California. Previously she taught visual arts at the University of California, San Diego and engineering at Yale University.
Jeremijenko, whose background includes studies in biochemistry, physics, neuroscience and precision engineering, creates work described as experimental design, as it explores opportunities presented by new technologies for non-violent social change. Her research centres on structures of participation in the production of knowledge and information, and the political and social possibilities (and limitations) of information and emerging technologies - mostly through public experiments. In this vein, her work spans a range of media from statistical indices (such as the Despondency Index, which linked the Dow Jones to the suicide rate at San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge) to biological substrates (such as the installations of cloned trees in pairs in various urban micro-climates) to robotics (such as the development of feral robotic dog packs to investigate environmental hazards).
