Darrin Martin

Darrin Martin engages the synesthetic qualities of perception by exploring tactile, audible, and visual phenomena through video, performance, sculpture, and print-based installations. Influenced by his own experiences with hearing loss, his current projects consider notions of accessibility through the use of tactility, sonic analogies, and audio descriptions. His works have screened at the Museum of Modern Art (NY); Pacific Film Archive (CA); Impakt Festival (Netherlands); European Media Art Festival (Germany), and many others.  His installations have exhibited at venues including The Kitchen (NY), University of Toronto (Canada), Grand Central Art Center (CA), and, most recently, at The Moscow State Museum of Vadim Sidur (Russia), and in solo exhibitions at Aggregate Space Gallery (CA) and Art & Design Gallery (KS).  He teaches art at the University of California, Davis.
