Adriene Jenik

Adriene Jenik began at the ASU Herberger Institute School of Art on July 1, 2009 as its director. She is a telecommunications media artist who has been working for over 20 years as a teacher, curator, administrator, and engineer. Her works combine "high" technology and human desire to propose new forms of literature, cinema, and performance. She received her BA in English from Douglass College, Rutgers University, and her MFA in Electronic Arts from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. She has taught a broad range of electronic media classes at California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), UC Irvine, University of Southern California (USC), UCLA's New Media Lab, and finally at UC San Diego, where she was a full-time research faculty member in the Visual Arts Department for 11 years. Prior to joining the UCSD faculty, Jenik was employed as an engineer on the Blast Jr. development team for Disney Online's Daily Blast.
