Academic Research/Areas of Interest
Myren investigates issues of place and space via the
exploration and employment of various locative systems. He is most interested in how macro
systems relate to micro experiences of land and landscape. Myren's ongoing and recent series
include a photographic investigation of the Fortieth Parallel of latitude; a
piece documenting the view from every place he has lived to where he lives now;
and a study via photographs, audio, and video of the poet Robert Francis’s
one-person house in the woods of Amherst, MA.
