C Alex Clark
Moving through varied mediums and crafts including holography, digital image making, sculpture, weaving, video, installation, and performance, C Alex Clark's practice seeks to confront, challenge, and enhance modes of perception. A destabilization of strongly held perceptual beliefs can change the simplex modes of thought which are handed to us, allowing for a complex—or further, multiplex—constellation of new thought to arise.

Born 1988 in Wichita, Kansas, C currently resides in Santa Fe, NM. They graduated with a BFA in Photography from Santa Fe University of Art and Design (2014) and completed their MFA in the Low-Residency program at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago (2018). They currently work as an assistant and collaborator with August Muth—a world-renowned hologram artist—and as the Assistant to the Directors for Parallel Studios—which produces CURRENTS, an annual new media art festival.
