Supply and Demand by artist Ian Brill, is an interstitial navigation between beauty, the sublime, and the picturesque. It is a collection of performative, light, and sound installations. These programmatic, site-specific works are the negotiated balance between a consistent set of rules, an evolving, symbolic language, and preexisting constraints. Pittsburgh resident, Ian Brill's work focuses on the accumulation of form through process. Through the creation of interactive, performative, and multi-sensorial environments, Brill considers boundaries of becoming, versus being, and our immersive relationship with technology.
Brill’s installations, performances, and writings have been presented internationally; as well as through local, regional, and national collaborations at notable conferences and festivals, prominent museums, and visual arts galleries. Previous exhibitions have been on view in collaboration with the Pittsburgh Cultural Trust in the Cultural District at SPACE, 707 Gallery, Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival and Highmark First Night Pittsburgh. Currently, Ian teaches at Penn State University, and he is the Creative Director for Primer Industries.
