Steve Gurysh

Steve Gurysh is collaborating with Nancy Crooks.

Steve Gurysh is an artist who lives and works in Charlottesville, VA.
Through his investigations in sculpture, drawing, and performance his
work explores and re-imagines failed ecological utopias as sites for
understanding and modeling the poetics and politics of sustainability.
Currently, he is modifying a snowmobile to run off of glacial melt
and studying particular species of lichen along the Blue Ridge
Mountains.  In the fall, he will begin his MFA at Carnegie-Mellon
