Contract Lecturer

Max Dean is an artist who works with ideas, concepts and emotions visually. Trained as an art historian, his work reflects his comfort and ingenuity in working and mixing both digital and analog technologies. Dean's kinetic and interactive sculptural installations are exhibited and collected internationally, including one of his best know artworks, the Robotic Chair; a generic-looking wooden chair with the capacity to fall part and put itself back together. Dean is a recent recipient of the Governor General’s Award for Excellence in the Visual Arts.
