The ‘American Voice’ of UIowa Art Professor Jon Winet

Jon Winet, a professor in the Intermedia Program in the School of Art and Art History at the University of Iowa, has followed U.S. presidential elections since the 1984 National Democratic Convention in San Francisco. He first covered events using photography to document candidates and voters, but now he captures elements of the events using digital cameras to take stills and record video to create “new media” art.

Artist and software developer Craig Dietrich is a collaborator with Jon Winet on a “new media” examination of U.S. elections.

As part of the UIowa Intermedia Program’s community practicum, Dietrich designed the website for Iowa City Senior Center Television, something Winet described as a “very sophisticated video on-demand, multi-channel network.”

Dietrich, an MFA candidate in Intermedia, said he believes that “in some sense the web browser fails as a means of being print media.” He thinks that websites should focus on navigational controls and display; that is, essentially, they should accent their abilities in four dimensions, instead of only two dimensions.

Here’s Dietrich on web design:
