Johnathan Baker is an artist working mainly in lens based media. Using photography, video, and 3D animation, his work explores popularity and coolness through the frame of the screen, as well as mass media and its effects on one’s orientation to the world. Johnathan was raised in rural East Central Indiana before moving to Indianapolis to obtain his BFA in Photography from Herron School of Art and Design. Four years later he moved to Baltimore to receive his MFA in Photographic and Electronic Media from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), and has resided here ever since. He currently teaches in the First Year Experience department at MICA, and is excited to be the new Digital Arts and Technology Specialist at Goucher College.
