Jen Southern is an artist who works with people to explore mobility on the ground, in the air, and at a distance.
This collection of her individual and collaborative work spanning back to 2001 examines the meanings of everyday technologies in our lives, including video games, sat nav, aerial photography and mobile phone apps.
The starting point for all of Jen’s works is to travel with someone or something. She then captures tracks and traces of these journeys and transforms them into images, objects and installations that explore what it means to be mobile in specific situations.
