Jane Tingley creates environments that use both new and old technologies to explore sensory worlds based on the viewers’ experience. Her work is currently based on an exploration of the epidermis, where information is currently released little by little through organic systems, which metamorphose through the action of chemical, electrical, and mechanical interactions. She is interested in the cooperation and creation involved in “sensory experimentation” when systems fuse, invent themselves, and communicate from the microcosms of the body to the macrocosm of the living world.
She obtained a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from the University of Manitoba in Winnipeg in 1999 and is a recipient of the Kenneth Finkelstein Prize for Sculpture. She completed her M.F.A. at Concordia University in Montreal.
