Michael N. Meyer

engaging with the raw electric materials of contemporary image making

Michael N. Meyer intended to be a photographer. Over time, his practice expanded to include a broader set of
observational technologies. Stripping such processes of perception back to fundamental functions, he
engages them as abstract forms. His practice wends through analog, electronic and digital photography, electronics,
field recording, book making and video(synthesis).

His work is a self-reflexive examination of the ways in which the physical and social (infra)structure
of seeing shapes his perception of the world. By extension, this examination serves to shine a metaphorical
light on the role and function of observational technologies in larger social, technological and political contexts.

Michael has exhibited across the US, in Europe, and in Asia and is a 2023 NYSCA/NYFA Artist Fellow in Electronic/Digital Arts.
He lives in Brooklyn, NY with his wife and his daughter.

Spectacle Box

Michael founded SpectacleBox as a platform from which to collaborate with artists in his extended network,
exhibiting and distributing their work and his own. Since 2017, the collective has produced exhibits for Rotterdam Photo
and participated in the New England Art Book Fair, Pioneer Work's Press Play, Cleveland MoCA's Bound, and Acid Free at
Blum & Poe in LA. In 2023 Michael began producing Riso zine publications as part of SB's efforts.
