Conversation with Jeff Jensen from the 2015 CCCA Arts Conference entitled the Digitization of the Christian Imagination.
The 2015 arts conference explores the challenges and opportunities of digital technology on the imaginative life of the Christian artist. The digital revolution of the last decade has unleashed an unprecedented wave of unlimited creative opportunities for artists in all fields. Does this democratization of digital tools result in better art, film, music and literature or is true talent instead drowned out in the vast digital ocean of mass culture? This year’s conference will address this question and explore the exciting creative possibilities and challenges offered by digital technologies.

In addition, Jensen has won the Eisner Award for his graphic novel, Green River Killer: A True Detective Story.
