About

Jeffrey Jennings (b. 1984) is an award-winning New York artist who works primarily in video and film. Over the years, his work has explored numerous topics such as human nature, obsession, religion, trust, agency, mental illness, and the struggles of communication. Inspired by science and the rich history of film and art, Jennings confronts the viewer with challenging and uncompromising examinations on who we are, what we are, why we are, and how we are as human beings.
