Joel Holmberg

Based in: New Haven, CT

Joel Holmberg is an all-purpose artist, who's formally trained as a sculptor and works in a variety of analog and digital media. His Internet work includes "Legendary Account" (2011), a long-term project in which the artist posted deep, personal, or otherwise unanswerable questions like "what does it feel like to be in love?", "what will happen to earth?" or "are you feeling lucky?" on the Yahoo! Answers forum. He also dabbles in the less profound, like "Pups & Order" (2009), a collection of YouTube videos of dogs howling to the "Law & Order" theme music. In his sculptural practice, he sometimes incorporates computer references through source imagery, materials like ink jet pigment, or processes like three-dimensional printing.
