Jon Winet is a media producer, artist, researcher and educator. Since 2002
 he has served on the faculty of the University of Iowa in the School of
Art and Art History Intermedia Program. He is also a member of the faculty
of International Programs.

In 2011 he was appointed the inaugural director the University's Digital
Studio for Public Humanities. In August 2012, the Studio launched AIDS
Quilt Touch, a location-aware mobile web app that allows visitors to search
the Quilt's index, find panels on display and contribute comments. The
project, a collaboration led by Anne Balsamo with Dale MacDonald, opened in
conjunction with the Smithsonian Folklife Festival and a display of the
Quit on the Washington Mall.

He also directs the University of Iowa UNESCO City of Literature Mobile
Application Development Team, an interdisciplinary research initiative.

During the 2012 U.S. Presidential Election campaigns he led a collaborative
team of artists and writers on "First in the Nation," his eighth
quadrennial hybrid new media art -  documentary Election-year project.

He is currently working on "Our Las Vegas," a mostly online cultural
animation project funded in part by the Las Vegas Arts Commission.
