about the teaching artist

Cameron Mankin makes drawings, prints, and artist’s books that investigate and retool found media. Security camera footage, cracked CDs, and old textbooks get broken down into their component parts and collaged together into exploded arrangements, all with the goal of cracking the surface of the increasingly streamlined media systems we interact with in our daily lives. Mankin teaches in the Media Arts and Design program at the University of Chicago.
