Nathaniel Stern combines new and traditional media in installations, prints, videos, and public works that frame and amplify our relationships to each other, and our environments. He is best known for: his digitally interactive artworks, which ask us to find meaning in our own movements; his performative prints, where he traverses the landscape with a desktop scanner and battery pack, to produce beautiful abstract imagery; and his collaborations with Jessica Meuninck-Ganger - translucent prints and drawings mounted to video screens that make "moving images on paper."
According to Chicago’s widely popular Bad at Sports art podcast, Stern has “the most varied and strange bio of maybe anyone ever on the show,” and South Africa’s Live Out Loud magazine calls him a “prolific scholar” as well as artist, whose work is “quite possibly some of the most relevant around.” Dubbed one of Milwaukee's "avant-garde" (Journal Sentinel), Stern has been called ”an interesting and prolific fixture” (Artthrob.co.za) behind many “multimedia experiments” (Time.com), “accessible and abstract simultaneously” (Art and Electronic Media web site), someone “with starry, starry eyes” (Wired.com) who “makes an obscene amount of work in an obscene amount of ways” (Bad at Sports). According to Caleb A. Scharf at Scientific American, Stern’s work is “tremendous fun” but also “fascinating” in how it is “investigating the possibilities of human interaction and art.”
