Doug Jarvis is interested in conceptual strategies for the artistic production of perceptual and pseudoscientific devices that question technology as a human attribute. His art practice incorporates sculpture, drawing, performance, digital imaging, and the internet to render the experience of being a sensory agent in the world.
He performs independent research in an international context constructing theories of collaged space, fictional entities, and the sense and nonsense of engagement with the things around him. He develops projects to challenge and critically engage these ideas and to highlight his own sense of paradox as an active participant in a world in which he absorbs and exhausts simultaneously.
He is a founding member of Noxious Sector, and the avatar performance art group Second Front. He is currently working on an MFA in Guelph, Ontario.
