Studio Artist Program
Stewart Ziff explores the ways in which we see through an interest in the relationship between what we see and how we see. His ideas reflect on the phenomenology of sight, the space we occupy and with notions about perception, knowledge, history, memory and vision. Ziff has exhibited his work nationally and internationally, and has lived part time in Athens, Greece, where he helped manage and coordinate Personal Cinema, a non-profit arts organization he co-founded there that sought to promote peace and dialogue in the Balkans, bringing artists, writers and film-makers together from within its disparate environs through opportunities they developed for exhibition and collaborative exchange.
Ziff recently moved to Atlanta from Brooklyn, NY, to join the faculty of the Georgia State University School of Art and Design as an Associate Professor of New Media. He holds a BFA in Fine Arts and an MFA in Computer Art from the School of Visual Arts in New York. Aspects of his studio practice are informed from many years spent as a systems professional in academia and industry, engaged with problems of visualization and the technology of new media in both production and research oriented situations.
