Zach McLane (Los Angeles) is an artist and writer. His work explores legibility and processes meaning making. It takes shape in essays, videos, and poems. Merging aspects of memoir with theoretical discourse and artistic critique, he finds intimate connections between seemingly disparate ideas. McLane’s research-based practice is grounded critical theory, art history, and film theory. His recent video work uses processes of degradation and repetition as generative tools for meaning, and is concerned with the materiality of digital images. He holds a BA in Narrative Studies from the University of Southern California, where he studied narrative form and contemporary visual culture.
