Josh Thorson is an artist and writer who lives and works in New York City and Rochester, NY
In his videos and writing, he uses themes such as consciousness, science, religion, love, 
and the virtual in an exploration of the subjective exchange that takes place in storytelling. 
More recently, his work focuses on the intersections of modernist ideals, the nuclear family, 
and global capitalism. In his video designs for collaborative theater projects, Thorson strives 
to use video linguistically, as if the projections were another character in the performance. 
His work has been exhibited internationally.

Thorson has an MFA from Bard College. He was awarded a fellowship from the School
of Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute
to pursue a Ph.D. in Electronic Art, which he completed in 2013. His research
interests include narrative video art, narrativity in storytelling and representation,
the intersection of documentary and fiction practices, radical empiricism,
and the representation of the spiritual in cinema. He is an Assistant Professor of Fine Art
in the School of Photographic Arts and Sciences at Rochester Institute of Technology.
