Long-time software developer Wade Stebbings joined the Walker Art Center, New Media Initiatives group in January 2014 after six years at the University of Minnesota’s Population Center. Meanwhile he is working on an MFA in Interactive Design with the goal to holistically integrate his aesthetic interests with technical skills. As a visual artist, Wade’s most recent new media piece is called Subconscious Earth. Prior work includes photography, paintings and the design of one, self-published book titled One Hundred Views of Beijing. Presently, his biggest conundrum is making sense of Finnegans Wake by James Joyce, or maybe just use it as inspiration.
