Jeanne Randolph is a psychoanalyst and writer of highly inventive visual arts criticism. In her syntaxerrors presentation, Jeanne recounts, illustrates and distorts the psychoanalytic theory and self-induced neurosis that compelled her to extemporize her lectures rather than read a rationally composed, organized essay to her audiences.
Randolph's lectures and presentations draw upon current research interests as evident in articles such as Ambiguity and the Technological Object, Technology and the Meaningful Body and Why Stoics Box. Randolph has participated in a wide range of photographic and new media projects, such as Stan Denniston's Fictional Portraits, the internet project Videoscopia curated by Jorge Marzos (Barcelona), Virtual Metropolis, and was a "barfly" in Vera Frenkel's Body Missing.
