Focus area: Art History, Cultural Practices, Social Practice, Performance Art, Theater Studies, Science Theory, Philosophy, Sociology, Surveillance, Security, Video, Film

I [graydonwetzler.info] trained as an experimental filmmaker (MFA) and completed a PhD in performance studies at NYU. I research, write and teach across contemporary art theory, STS, historical epistemology, and media theory. These and other areas of inquiry are addressed through syntheses of experimental ethnography, media theory+practice and sociology of knowledge. Currently  the I address the tenuous chirality of formal and materialist semiotics animating current complexes of living, nonliving, and possibly living. Concurrent to these research and creative activities are contributions to activist collaboratives as filmmaker/documentarian, media producer and digital archivist.
