Eric Corriel is a multidisciplinary artist primarily working in the public realm. His work focuses on providing experiential frameworks that allow people to feel their way through contemporary issues by transforming the landscape around them through site-specific installations.

E.g. Water Will Be Here, Glaciers Will Not Be There, Fire Will Be Here, Targeted, Gyre, Pool Portals, Video Salon, The Over and the Under, Light Bikes, Excite Bikes, Bicycle Race, The Watcher, Yellow Forest

As an activist artist, he creates products that allow individuals to express their values in publicly visible and meaningful ways. Using the levers of capitalism—mass manufacturing, supply chain administration, warehouse, and distribution logistics, inventory management—he creates cheap, accessible, and open-source products that can be produced and deployed at scale to create on the ground, grassroots activist movements that propagate themselves in the physical landscape as well as on social media.

As an artist working in the digital realm, Eric seeks to generate new ways of seeing, conceiving, and imagining the digital; to give it form and story; to add to the lexicon used to describe and navigate this vast frontier.

E.g. Enter The Machine 1.0, Enter The Machine 2.0, Digital Photography Series
