Jordan Seiler Jordan Seiler, born in New York City in 1979, attended the Rhode Island School of Design to study photography. He currently lives and works in New York City. Jordan’s artistic, activist, and academic work is an investigation into the role commercial media plays in our public spaces, and what that says about our larger priorities as a society. He believes it is important to question the monopolization of our public visual environment for commercial concerns and to consider what that means for the determination of our collective social agenda. “By privileging one type of message over another, we are through repetition, setting the terms of our cultural and political discourse. Considering the great hurdles we face socially and environmentally, the commercial discourse with which we surround ourselves not only ignores our current reality, but actively works against it by distracting us from each other in favor of ourselves.” By reclaiming our streets and demanding a public visual landscape that reflects the public’s concerns over a commercial agenda, Jordan Seiler’s work calls upon a prized and shared civic resource to host the revolution once again.
