Mary Flanagan

USA, 1969

Mary Flanagan’s work explores the anxious and profound relationship between technological systems and human experience, with a focus on games, play, emotion, and deeply held unconscious biases. Her artwork ranges from game-based systems to computer viruses, embodied interfaces to interactive texts; these works are exhibited internationally at venues including The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Guggenheim, Tate Britain, Postmasters, Steirischer Herbst, Ars Electronica, Artist’s Space, the Telfair Museum, ZKM Medienmuseum, and more.

Flanagan’s approach to games and technological systems occupy both onscreen space as well as move away from the screen to push reflection on familiar relationships to play, politics, and the personal. Flanagan teaches at Dartmouth College and leads the Tiltfactor game research laboratory there. She based in New Hampshire and New York City, USA.
