Jon Ippolito
Jon Ippolito is an Associate Professor of New Media at U-Me who specializes in doing the right thing in the wrong ways.

Jon Ippolito Ippolito invents ways to build and sustain networks, a fact that often makes him unpopular with media monopolists, bureaucrats, and other apologists for hierarchic culture. Ippolito works with the Variable Media Network to devise new preservation paradigms to rescue digital culture from obsolescence, with the Open Art Network to promote open architectures for media art, and with the Interarchive working group to find net-native ways to connect online scholarship.

He's exhibited collaborative artworks at the Walker Art Gallery, ZKM, and Harvard; curated shows for the Guggenheim on virtual reality and Nam June Paik; and written for the Washington Post, Artforum, and Leonardo. Ippolito's collaborative architectures such as The Pool and ThoughtMesh have nabbed Wired headlines, while his book At the Edge of Art, co-authored with Joline Blais, offers an expansive definition for art of the 21st century.
