Career Specialties: Bryan Perry is interested in the ways in which text and image have different means of communicating narrative, and how the combination of the two can create opportunity for complex storytelling. He is also interested in the ways in which visual storytelling and new technology can be used to bring narrative to life on screens, in physical spaces and in traditional print media.
Professional and Community Activities: Perry's recent show, Who’s He When He’s at Home?, is an exploration of philosophical and literary notions of home. It is an exploration of the unique ways in which text and image can communicate abstract concepts, and what the boundaries of such communication may be. The solo exhibition of the project took place in April 2017 at the Ernest G. Welch School of Art and Design Galleries in Atlanta, GA. It combined large photographic panels, typographic scrolls and field recordings to create a synesthetic experience of various conceptions of home.
In recent years, he has also worked academically and professionally with interactive and physical computing technologies, and how they can be combined with traditional design techniques to create virtual and environmental activations. These activities have included experimental time-based, responsive, text and image projections, as well as designs of mobile apps for commercial clients that allow attendees of trade shows and conferences to experience and interact with the physical spaces created by the exhibitor.
