Andrew Demirjian is an interdisciplinary artist who creates experimental assemblages of image, sound and text. Typologies, the language of naming and the politics of categorization are often a focus of his projects. Drawing from conceptual art, experimental music and computer science he creates poetry and audiovisual compositions that use constraint systems, chance operations and remixing. The pieces take the form of interactive installations, generative artworks, audiovisual performances and single channel videos.
Andrew’s work has been exhibited at The Museum of the Moving Image, Eyebeam, Rush Arts, the White Box gallery, the Fridman Gallery, Cyberfest, Fieldgate Gallery, the Center for Book Arts, The Newark Museum and many other galleries, festivals and museums. The MacDowell Colony, Puffin Foundation, Artslink, Harvestworks, Diapason, The Experimental Television Center, The Bemis Center, LMCC Swing Space, The Visual Studies Workshop and the New Jersey State Council on the Arts are among some of the organizations that have supported his work. In 2018 he will be a Fellow in the Open Documentary Lab at MIT working on a computational text analysis project. Andrew teaches theory and production courses in emerging media in the Film and Media Department and IMA MFA program at Hunter College.
