Short biography: 

Annette Barbier uses new technologies to address issues of home, domesticity, and the ways in which identity is bound up with one's environment. Her work has moved from an emphasis on the personal to a consideration of the global, looking at ways in which home has come to be defined more broadly as populations shift, and as our interdependence becomes increasingly clear.

Barbier graduated from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago with an MFA.  She chairs the Interactive Arts and Media Department at Columbia College, Chicago, where she teaches new media theory and practice.  She came to Columbia from Northwestern University, where she directed the Center for Art and Technology.

She has exhibited in the International Society for Electronic Arts (ISEA), Ars Electronica, the International Digital Media Art Association (IDMAA) and has show at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Chicago) and screened work in numerous festivals and on public television and cable.
