Alex Ingersoll

Alex Ingersoll is an Assistant Professor of Media Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point where he teaches media theory, history, criticism, and production. He received his Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill on media and technology studies with a focus on technologies of spatial representation, orientation, and memory.

Much of his work explores the aesthetic and sonic environments of our social imaginations of space and the tension among neglected and marginalized ideas and machines. Using experimental and animated approaches to the moving image, he is interested in the productive possibilities that come from our experiences and encounters that have undefined edges and features. His work has been featured in venues and festivals in the U.S. and abroad, including the Milwaukee

Underground Film Festival, Currents International New Media Festival in Santa Fe, the Strange Beauty Film Festival in Durham N.C., and the Alchemy Film Festival in Hawick, Scotland.
