Evan Roth is an Artist was born on March 7th, 1978 in Okemos, Michigan.He received a degree from the University of Maryland and a MFA from the Communication, Design and Technology school at Parsons in New York. Roth’s creates art using technology. His works include both video and still pieces. His art is greatly influenced by computer coding and hacking.Some of his exhibitions include AVAILABLE ONLINE FOR FREE and Typsonic.
One thing about Roth’s biography that stood out to me, was his education. I studied at Parson’s New school for a semester, but never looked into any graduates. I find it interesting that he was voted one of the top 10 most interesting students in 2008.
Besides his education, his work is pretty unique. He draws inspiration from a place that I never would have thought of. Hacking and art are not things I would normally put together and looking at his work really influenced me, as an artist, to start thinking outside the box
