Edrex Fontanilla is an artist based in New York City, whose creative practice fuses sculptural and computational methods to explore perception, materiality, and temporality. He investigates the material characteristics of hybrid media to expose the various ontological states in emerging communication forms and digital art. His most recent works employ virtual reality as an interventional tool to promote cognitive empathy. Fontanilla has exhibited his creative work at both local and international venues such as the Queens Museum, the Tampa Museum of Art, Boston CyberArts, SIGGRAPH, and India’s TechFest. With an orientation towards socially responsible expression, Fontanilla is committed to a reflective teaching practice that enables young minds to develop their own voice. Edrex Fontanilla is an Assistant Professor in the Division of Mass Communication at St. John's University. He earned his M.F.A. in Digital Language Arts at Brown University, focusing on emergent forms in aesthetic computation, animation, and inscription. He also holds an M.A. in Computer Music and Multimedia Composition from Brown, with an emphasis in sound art. Prior to joining St. John’s University, Fontanilla served as an Assistant Professor of Communication & Media Arts at Marymount Manhattan College, where he established an Innovation Lab and taught courses in integrated digital media.
