Jamie Griffiths is a digital artist, film director & performer working with imagery, sound and light for interactive installations and live art performances.

Using experimental tools & custom digital environments, Jamie digs into humanity's failings and triumphs, through autobiographical transparency and deliberate cultural confrontations.

Early hardcore photographic portraits in outsider cultures of the 1980's and 90's, morphed into experiments with live performance. Jamie began to devise custom tools and digital systems as scalpels for extracting a therapeutic experience as part of the artistic process, by publicly dissecting ego and emotions through performance, film and interactive installations. Jamie’s latest works explore identity conflict, neo-colonialism, ecology and displacement.

DESIGN Commissions & ARTISTIC Collaborations
Commissioned works since 2001 include installations and performance designs for theatre, dance, opera and orchestra. Innovation and research in new technologies are integral, working with cameras, computers, live performance & interactive video installations that include sound and audio-analysis, wireless control systems, motion tracking and interactive 3D projections. Jamie presents workshops internationally, with over ten years experience teaching Professional Photography at Langara College and three years as Adjunct Professor in the film and theatre department at the University of British Columbia. She also guest lectures at universities and colleges in North America and Europe and is regularly commissioned for educational project consultations.

Jamie's interactive Isadora Workshops are personally recommended by the creator of Isadora, Mark Coniglio. Jamie has been an Isadora user since 2001 and is part of the Isadora Pro private Beta testing network. In 2014 Jamie became an official member of Isadora's online Mac support team.
