About

     Creating experiences that connect strangers in delightfully weird ways

Jennifer Katanyoutanant is an artist and creative director using immersive experiences to build creative communities. She makes installations, games, ARVR, interactive web performances, and loves imagining all the weird things we’ll be doing on the Internet in the next 10 years. At the moment, she’s working on an Oculus Quest game that uses your middle finger as the controller. 

She thrives in roles like R&D, product manager, community development, production, and creative direction; and has created storyworlds for 10,000 attendee events like Dropzone Festival, developed AR and 360 Film workshops for universities around Thailand, and produced immersive labs for film festivals in SF and LA. 

Previous art, media, and research residencies include: DinaCon (Digital Naturalism/Interaction Design Conference), Goethe’s critical research residency Acts of Life, Future Innovators Summit at Ars Electronica, Saari Residency by Kone Foundation, and Akademis Shloss Solitude’s Web residency. She was invited to participate in the Oculus Launchpad Program and has spoken at events such as WebVR for Social Good (sponsored by Samsung), Techsauce Global Summit, Goethe Literary Festival and more
