Artist's Talks

Informal presentations by artists.

Matt Kenyon's individual and collaborative work focuses on critical themes addressing the effects of global corporate operations, mass media and communication, military-industrial complexes, and general meditations on the liminal area between life and artificial life.

As SWAMP (Studies of Work Atmosphere and Mass Production), Kenyon and artist Douglas Easterly have been making work in this vein since 1999 using a wide range of media, including custom software, electronics, mechanical devices, and often with living organisms. Kenyon is an assistant professor in the School of Visual Arts at Penn State University.
