Currently completing his honours degree in Digital Media, Jason Haggerty has a multidisciplinary practice that spans sculpture and sound, generative and live video, interactive installation and performance. Based on the Gold Coast, Haggerty has a multidisciplinary practice that spans sculpture and sound, generative and live video, interactive installation and performance. He has exhibited across Australia in galleries, festivals, and events, while also moonlighting as a VJ.
Inspired by the ability of media to physically alter bodily sensation, Haggerty explores the overlapping of the body in virtual environments, hybridity, and spatiality. Increasingly engaging with new technologies, he employs various methods such as visual programming, motion-tracking, and interactive video and audio, with the aim of inducing proprioceptive experiences. Additionally, Haggerty has a growing body of work that investigates the natural and synthetic beauty of the Gold Coast, focusing on its shoreline and iconic wave breaks.
With an appreciation and passion for curatorship, Jason has recently taken on the role of Gallery Manager and Curator of Griffith University’s White Box Gallery on the Gold Coast.
