Sean's creative research involves the production of artist's books, prints, drawings and installations that explore the impact of technology on the environment and our bodies. Specifically, he is interested in creating visual images that blur boundaries between the biological and the technological, the organic and the mechanical, and challenge viewers to consider the implications of this merging. Recent exhibitions include Perceptions of Promise: Biotechnology, Society and Art at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary and Darkfire and the Waiting Room at the Art League Houston in Houston, Texas. Sean was named Canada Research Chair in Fine Arts (Tier 2) from 2000-2010 and is currently a University of Alberta Centennial Professor.
