Jim Bizzocchi

Short biography: 

Jim Bizzocchi is a moving image artist living in British Columbia, Canada. His Ambient Video series of works (www.ambientvideo.ca) explores an emergent genre of contemporary video art.  Ambient video is an intermedia form nested at the intersection of cinema, video and fine art photography.  The prime characteristic for such work is that it should never require viewer attention, but it must also always be visually rewarding and capable of supporting close viewing at any time. It should change, but not too quickly, and the details of any particular change should not be critical. Jim's work has been exhibited globally, including Vancouver, Durham and Banff in Canada, London UK, Ann Arbor, Houston, Athens and Los Angeles in the USA, Byron Bay, Australia and Three Gorges, China.

As an Associate Professor at Simon Fraser University, Jim's primary research examines the effects of new technologies on the visual poetics of the moving image.  He also does related research in game design and interactive narrative.  He is widely published, including a variety of scholarly book articles, journals such as the Journal of Moving Image Studies, International Journal of Art and Technology, Journal of Gaming and Simulation, International Journal of Computer Games Technology, and conference proceedings for Creativity and Cognition, International Conference on Entertainment Computing (ICEC), Media and Transition, Association for Computing Entertainment (ACE), Digital Games Research Association (DiGRA), among others.
