Jenni Rodda

“My areas of interest span the intersection of art history and librarianship, and I am fascinated with images--how they are made, how they are used, how they represent (or misrepresent) cultural objects.  It has been my privilege to help Institute scholars explore how technology impacts their work, and how they might better integrate technology into research, publication, presentation, and preservation.”

Jenni Rodda, Manager


Jason Varone

“My interest in art and technology date back to my time as a studio art major at NYU when I began combining digital technology with traditional painting. I enjoy bringing my perspective as an artist and a designer to the challenges that the Institute's community encounter when using technology to further their research.”

Jason Varone, Web & Electronic Media Manager
