R. Luke DuBois is a New York-based “new media” artist who works as a composer, computer programmer, filmmaker, and installation artist. Operating at the intersection of the visual, performative, and time-based arts, he explores what it means to live in today’s data-saturated world of globalized information.

DuBois spoke at Bowdoin about his art in conjunction with the exhibition R. Luke DuBois-Now, organized by the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota, Florida, and currently on view at the Bowdoin College Museum of Art. The exhibition includes video, sound, and print-based works ranging rom the late 1990s through today.

DuBois holds a doctorate in music composition from Columbia University. He is the director of the Brooklyn Experimental Media Center at the New York University Tandon School of Engineering and is on the Board of Directors of the ISSUE Project Room.
