Erik Loyer Lecture > 6pm Tuesday March 5

Erik Loyer will be a visiting artist on UMD campus on TUESDAY...
His Lecture is OPEN to the PUBLIC Tuesday March 5th at 6pm in Montague Hall

Erik Loyer is a media artist and creative director working at the intersection of interactivity, story, music and animation. As a digital media artist he often works in collaboration on creative projects that use emerging media such as iPads and game systems for innovative digital narratives and interactive poetic works... like STRANGE RAIN:

His work has been exhibited online and internationally at venues including Artport at the Whitney Museum of American Art; the Digital Gallery at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; the Prix Ars Electronica; Transmediale; and IndieCade. Loyer's award-winning website The Lair of the Marrow Monkey was one of the first to be added to the permanent collection of a major art museum, and his serialized web narrative Chroma went on to win the Best Digital Creation award at the Montreal International Festival of New Cinema and New Media.
As Creative Director for the experimental digital humanities journal Vectors, Loyer has designed over a dozen interactive essays in collaboration with numerous scholars including the Webby-honored documentary Public Secrets, and his commercial portfolio includes Clio and One Show Gold Award-winning work for Vodafone, as well as projects for BMW, Sony, and NASA.
He is the founder of interactive design studio Song New Creative, and develops story-driven interactive entertainment under the Opertoon label, including most recently a critically-acclaimed iPhone application entitled Ruben & Lullaby. A recipient of a Rockefeller Film/Video/Multimedia Fellowship, Loyer has a B.A. in Cinema/Television Production from the University of Southern California.
