Kris Cohen is Assistant Professor of Art and Humanities at Reed College. He teaches and writes about the relationships between art, economy, and media technologies, focusing especially on the aesthetics of collective life. His first book project, entitled /Never Alone, Except for Now/, addresses these concerns in the context of networked life. Future projects will deal with the relationship between dematerialization (in modernist commodities, including artworks) and intellectual property law, and the importance of the bitmap and the graphical user interface to art produced since the Sixties.
