Forrest McGarvey is an artist and writer currently residing in the Bay Area. He is interested in the contradictions that occur between medium specificity, technological mediation, and the psychic and corporeal experiences of a continually technologizing world. Through his hybridized practice, he searches for moments of failure and erasure produced from how we use objects, materials, and media to shape and define our current selves and culture.
He received an MA in Visual and Critical Studies and an MFA in Fine Arts from the California College of the Arts. Forrest also holds a BFA in Fine Arts from the C.W. Post Campus of Long Island University.
