Bio:

  • Erik Brunvand is an Associate Professor of Computer Science at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, where his research and teaching interests include the design of application-specific computers, graphics processors, asynchronous systems, and VLSI.

    As an artist, he is fascinated by connections between arts and technology, and by how the benefits of these connections flow in both directions. This interest in arts/tech collaborations has led him to explore and show a variety of kinetic mixed media artworks, many involving electronic control. He is also a printmaker, and co-founder of Saltgrass Printmakers, a non-profit printmaking studio and gallery in Salt Lake City since 2003. He works in relief (woodcut, photopolymer), letterpress, etching, experimental media (including electronics and micro-silicon art), and kinetic mixed media.
