Justin Wood is a South Florida based artist working in the overlap of the digital and physical worlds. His work is built on a conceptual framework derived from the impact of emerging technologies on humankind. This includes data visualizations from civilian casualties in the drone war, video documentation from acts of terrorism, tracking the impact of invasive species on local ecosystems and crime scene studies from mass shootings. Due to the direct impact from Hurricane Irma on his home in the Lower Florida Keys, his recent projects are calling attention to the massive physical destruction and catastrophic environmental damage left behind by increasingly powerful storms due to climate change. His work has been exhibited internationally in numerous solo and group exhibitions in the mediums of Projection Mapping, Screen Paintings, Video Sculpture, Video Art and Virtual Reality. He holds a BFA from the School of Visual Arts (NY) where he studied painting with Jack Whitten, Michael Goldberg and Joanne Greenbaum.
Justin is represented by IFAC and nAscent Art NY.
“Video mapping enables us to employ any number of computer technologies into a traditionally static medium unlocking what I believe to be a major shift in the creation and critique of paintings.”
