Lunchtime discussion with visiting artist: Bryan Funk
Free pizza or bring your own lunch
Open to all interested students, faculty and staff
Bryan Funk makes sculpture and video works with some sound and performative elements, and uses projection mapping to make experiential pieces with found objects. He uses found footage that has to do with memory, home biographical elements as well as news clips. He layers images in a variety of ways and is interested in finding new ways of seeing things that normally can be seen as mundane and matter of fact. Playfulness comes into his work as well when it comes to ways of using materials.
He has received a MFA in Multidisciplinary Art at Maryland Institute College of Art’s Mount Royal School of Art and a BFA in Sculpture from Tyler School of Art. Funk is from Bucks County, Pa., about 45 minutes north of Philadelphia, and his suburban upbringing plays an important part in his work that reflects on class and racial divides in America.
