Digital Artist in Residence for 2016
Meet Leo Hylan
Main Line Art Center is proud to announce our 2016 Digital Artist in Residence, Leo Hylan
. Selected by Main Line Art Center's Artistic Advisory Board
through a competitive application process, Hylan works in a plethora of media including programming, photography, filmmaking, video art (installation and VJ), and electronic music.
Based in the Baltimore area, Hylan has shown internationally, and primarily exhibits his work throughout the Mid-Atlantic region. He received his BFA in New Media from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, and both an MAT in Arts Education and an MFA in Digital Arts from Goucher College (Baltimore). He is currently an instructor at the First Magnet School in Annapolis, MD as well as on the Board of Directors at The Chesapeake Arts Center in Baltimore, MD.
Hylan's experimentation with technology has led to fantastic results. Interactivity is a main focus in his work, where the installation only comes to fruition when the viewer activates it. Hylan mixes old and new forms of digital media together in order to display the rapid changes it has undergone. His work is invested in the ever-evolving way society interacts with and responds to technology.
