Joy James’s research focuses on visual culture and art situated at the intersections of science, art, and technology. Current research and writing projects focus on an aesthetic of affect in visual technologies, and the uses of biotech imaging systems in new media art. These concerns move deep into philosophical questions regarding the applications and implications of emergent visual technologies as they are disseminated through contemporary art, the media, and popular culture.
