“a natural polymath and interdisciplinary artist, [Stern’s] passion… enlivens the conversation, steering it down tangential alleyways that enlighten his process with glorious context, while also bringing a cascade of new and interesting insights.” – Ola Kalejaye, Culture3

He “invites us to imagine the world in which technologies and biotic life appear and express to one another in the afterlife of us… a new network of relations” – Amanda Boetzkes, Professor of Contemporary Art History & Theory

“Stern’s artistic explorations work with materials and through bodies, [enabling] spectators to experience the unthinkable: to inhabit a post-human worldview firsthand.” – Kate Mondloch, Prof. of Contemporary Art & Theory

Stern “breaks apart language but also gets closer to the strength and the meaning of language… representing poetry to people in a new way [while] also using poetry as a tool to calm the rhetoric around something that could be quite controversial.” – Johnny Dean Mann, The Tickle Magazine
