Cory Arcangel

b. 1978 Buffalo, New York, U.S.; lives and works in Stavanger, Norway.

Cory Arcangel works across installation, video, printed media or music composition, both in the gallery or on the internet and is a leading exponent of technology-based art. Arcangel is drawn to the dualities and paradoxes of internet cultures; their ability to rapidly build new communities but, equally, the speed at which they become obsolescence. Trained as a musician and in music technology, music and coding are at the forefront of his enquiry. From repurposing technologies and reconfiguring web design to hacking as artistic practice, Arcangel remains faithful to open source culture thus questioning the value systems we have for art and culture.
