Introduction I am an educator, writer, and artist exploring the interface between digital culture, creative process, and biblical consciousness. As an educator in USA, I was professor at Columbia University, research fellow at MIT, head of the art department at Pratt Institute, and dean at New World School of the Arts. In Israel, I taught at Bar-Ilan, Ariel and Tel Aviv universities and at Emunah College and Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design. As a writer, my books are: 'Through a Bible Lens: Biblical Insights for Smartphone Photography and Social Media,' 'Photograph God: Creating a Spiritual Blog of Your Life,' 'The Future of Art in a Postdigital Age: From Hellenistic to Hebraic Consciousness,' 'Educating Artists for the Future: Learning at the Intersections of Art, Science, Technology, and Culture' and 'Dialogic Art in a Digital World: Judaism and Contemporary Art' (in Hebrew). As an artist, my conceptual, environmental, and digital artworks have been seen by millions and are represented in the collections of more than forty museums worldwide. I live in Ra'anana, Israel, with my wife artist Miriam Benjamin. website: www.melalexenberg.com
