Jenson Leonard (b. 1990, Detroit, Michigan) is an artist whose work takes form out of the collapsed context of the internet, often critiquing its slippage of meaning and techno-capital excess while pointing out its attraction at the same time. He holds an MFA in Creative Writing from Pratt Institute, and has completed residencies at Obracadobra (Oaxaca, Mexico), Squeaky Wheel (Buffalo, NY) and Pioneer Works (Brooklyn, NY). He teaches in the Department of Media Study at the University at Buffalo.

PLASMA is sponsored by the University at Buffalo's Department of Media Study and funding is provided by the Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. The series is taught and organized by Dr. Elia Vargas, Visiting Assistant Professor of Media Study, with co-sponsorship from the UB Department of Art, Coalesce: Center for Biological Art, The Buffalo Institute of Contemporary Art, and the UB Digital Humanities Research Workshop.
