Biography

 

Dennis Hlynsky is a US-based artist and designer. With an insatiable desire to consider technology and its place in the arts, he came early to video and has more than 30 years of experience in the medium. He was among the first students in the RISD video program and is now a devoted teacher. Since 1983 he has committed himself to the study of digital processes. A skilled 3D artist, his most recent work was cited by the Black Maria Film Festival. 

Hlynsky was a co-founder of Electron Movers, a regional media center and performance space, and a principal in the Video Analysis Project for ten years, using video as an intervention for people with life-threatening problems. The project garnered the attention of international media. His interest in celebration as an art form resulted in his designing the fireworks celebration for Providence for five years and has been central to several longstanding community arts events. Most recently, he and Daniel Peltz co-designed the Lepton, a true-non-linear editor for social web-based media.
