My Bio
Jacob Pierzchala is a Michigan-based artist whose primary work is situated in the digital realm. He received his MFA in Studio Art from Bowling Green State University in 2012, and currently works with digital artist, Erwin Redl, and teaches at Grand Valley State University.

Jacob's artwork aims to explore and criticize the often binary nature of worldviews. He sees art as the continuation of an ongoing dialogue, and in light of this, his most notable influences are the writings of C.S. Lewis, the photography of Paul Strand, the socio-technological theory of Ray Kurzweil, and hypermedia Poetry of Jason Nelson.

art ( NEWS FLASH! Its hard to believe that a year ago from today I found myself, for the very first time, woken to the sound of the busy Tokyo street in front of my Azabu guesthouse.

Its strange how sometimes when we are emotionally burdened we can become inspired. Today I decided to post several poems that are very dear to me.
