Chris Kerich

Chris Kerich is a programmer, artist, and human being. Sometimes the latter is consumed by the former. Chris has a bachelor's in Mathematics from Carnegie Mellon University but likes to tell people that he very nearly minored in film. He has spent time in the trenches of professional software engineering and unprofessionally working with system-focused art (some of which is on his website www.ckerich.com) Chris' interests lie in what he calls critical systems studies, or, critically reading systems/algorithms as media & asking the important questions of For Whom, Why, and How. This can take many forms, but one of particular importance to him is pushing digital and non-digital systems to their absolute limits and seeing how this stress characterizes or fractures them.
