Cory Arcangel

Cory Arcangel

Cory Arcangel was born in 1978 in Buffalo (NY); he lives and works in Brooklyn. The impartiality with which Arcangel perceives software, hardware and Internet resources as raw art materials, placing them in new contexts, reveals a completely novel style. In the mid-2000s, he became well-known particularly through his method of applying archaeology in historical computer technology of the 1980s, while in recent years he has expanded his repertoire of art material and digital sources. The ageing process of technologies is a central theme in Arcangel's work. In 2011, the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York held a solo exhibition of his work.
