Ryan Dewey’s work is a kind of socially-engaged ecological dreaming that takes shape as installation, performance, research, workshops, and land art to highlight the entanglements between people, places, and land use. He has been a resident at ACRE, the Alps Art Academy, and a visiting researcher in the department of cognitive science at Case Western Reserve University where he wrote Hack the Experience: Tools for Artists from Cognitive Science. He is a member of non//sense collective and founder the collective Geologic Cognition Society. His work blurs disciplinary lines and often appears in unexpected venues including the British Society for Geomorphology, the American Association of Geographers, Kickstarter, the University of Bern, Concordia University (Montreal), the Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative, the Annenberg School for Communication (Philadelphia), Progressive Insurance (Cleveland), MONU (Rotterdam), KERB (Melbourne), and living history festivals, as well as more traditional art venues including SPACES, ACRE, and other artist-run spaces. Born in 1979, he lives and works in Cleveland, Ohio. Find out more at www.RyanDewey.org.
