Jenn E Norton is a Canadian artist working with interdisciplinary media including video, installation, sound and kinetic sculpture to produce performative, critically engaged work that plays with the elastic qualities inherent of digital technologies. Recent works have decidedly delved into the intuitive, imaginative and emotive process of image making. She has been described as "a wizard of simple but magical video compositing, creating simple but brilliant collage spaces" by award-winning filmmaker, curator and critic, Chris Gehman and her recent video work as "kinetic, totally charming, magical, [and] emo-conceptual" by Border Crossings art critic, Lee Henderson. Norton has won numerous grants, awards and scholarships, including the OCAD Integrated Media Medal for excellence in an interdisciplinary practice. She received an MFA from the University of Guelph in 2007, and worked as an educator, freelance animator, painter, and circus performer.
