Jody Zellen is a Los Angeles based artist who
is currently a Visiting Artist at the School of the Museum of
Fine Arts, Boston. Zellen works in many media simultaneously making
photographs, installations, net art, public art, as well as artists'
books that explore the subject of the urban environment. She employs
media-generated representations of contemporary and historic cities
as raw material for aesthetic and social investigations. Zellen's
website "Ghost City" begun in 1997 is an ever changing
meditation on the urban environment. "Crowds and Power"
was the October 2002 portal for the Whitney Museum's artport.
