Alex Myers is Associate Professor of Interaction Design in the Department of Computer Science,
Design, and Journalism at Creighton University. Often interrogating issues of immersion, affect,
violence, and interactivity, Alex’s new media work has been widely exhibited in international
venues across North America and Europe. His work has also received numerous grants and
awards, including the Provincie Groningen Kunst en Cultuur Prijs in 2009 and 2014; the Electric
Objects Artist Grant in 2016; and the “Best Interactive” Award from the Austin Music Video Festival
in 2017. As a visual artist, he explores the use of video game technologies in media art. In his work,
Alex interrogates the critical roles which technologies familiar from mainstream media contexts
can play in experimental art practices.
