Jak Ritger

Jak Ritger is an interdisciplinary artist, writer and activist based in Allston, Massachusetts. Ritger’s practice uses photography to expose hidden structures underneath the built environment and systems of power shaping everyday life. Working within online art and politics collectives, Ritger uses data-visualisation, drawing, and essay writing to model emerging social patterns and information flows. As an organiser, he works to catalyse digitally distributed collective art and discourse projects, such as CODEX NM Y2K20, a compendium of the first year of the Covid-19 ‘syndemic’, as seen through the NEW MODELS discord group.
