Kevin Mercer, Assistant Professor

Assistant Professor Kevin Mercer’s interdisciplinary work investigates the human as a cybernetic component within systems and networks. Handmade, pseudoscientific technology strains to establish a tenuous but critical link to the ephemeral, illustrating loss, longing, and the need for communication. Mercer integrates animation, sound, projection, physical computing, and hacked electronics within immersive spaces. Anachronistic equipment, such as black and white tube tv’s or slide projectors, deliver shaped light, digital animations, and 3D scans of found objects. Perceptions of the past and present osculate along with tangents of physical and digital realties.
