“All the skill of the artist cannot turn a process into a thing.”
-Lee Smolin, theoretical physicist
While ROYGBIV* limits our eyes, and 20Hz-20kHz limits our ears, nothing limits our minds alone. But a mind with limited senses has limited reach; and so I build synesthetic experiences that interlace our modes of perception to extend this reach. The outcome is an emerging bodily awareness over the confluence of energy and matter.

Brian Doyle’s artwork questions the idea of common experience. His films, installations and photos examine the collision of cultural and natural phenomena. Often developed through the lens of a developing storm, his quasi-fictional documentaries gracefully uncover realities just beneath the surface of our recognition. Themes include information overload, technology as progress substantiated, and the future and past colliding into a transfigured present. Doyle’s award winning films have been shown on television, in film festivals, museums, and in galleries around the world. Screenings include the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, Reel New York (WNET New York, Channel Thirteen, PBS), Tribeca Film Festival, and Slamdance. He recently participated in the Peekskill Project V, organized by the Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art.
Doyle graduated with a BFA from Florida State University and an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and lives in Beacon, NY. He is a 2009 fellow in Film from the New York Foundation for the Arts.
