American Theatre: “In the Uncanny Valley With Jennifer Haley”

at_dec15_Jennifer_Haley_ovation

“It’s not really about technology,” [Jennifer Haley] explains of her work. “Ultimately I’m interested in technology because it’s giving us a way to live alternate lives. I’m very interested in identity and how people perceive themselves. The technology for me is just an interesting way to examine these really limitless, long-standing, global questions of identity, and waking life versus dream life.”

Indeed, part of what makes the worlds she conjures so eerily familiar is that they aren’t that far removed from an age in which smartphones are practically human appendages and Internet celebrity is an actual paying job. —American Theatre
