Artist Talk w/

Ryan Buyssens

November 21 at 2:30 pm


One of the exhibiting artist currently on display in the Faculty Exhibition, Ryan Buyssens was born and raised near Detroit, MI; an environment that imparted a rich, lifelong influence from the automotive industry’s mechanized culture. A recipient of the North Carolina Arts Fellowship for 2012/13, he exhibits his work internationally. As an artist, inventor and maker of kinetic esoterica, he expresses his ideas through countless media. Ryan creates devices with the use of computer design, 3D printing, CNC machining, laser-cutting and good-old-fashioned-patience. The technologically advanced appearance and operation of the work is offset by the approachable, empirical design of the objects themselves. Preferring to explore the “what if” in the evolution of technology, he seeks out a departure from the logical path of invention and uses it as a branch that sprouts new possibilities. His work becomes a comment on logic and progress.
