Dusty Herbig is an Associate Professor of Art, and Director of Lake Effect Editions at Syracuse University. Herbig earned an MFA – Graphics, from the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 2002, and his BFA – Art, from Fort Hays State University, in Hays, KS in 1996.
Herbig’s current research seeks to expose contradictions regarding power - energy. Whether questioning origins of power, (sun. . . fossil fuels . . . votes) the laws humans break in order to obtain power, (surveillance. . . land-grabbing. . . war) or the ramifications for the prospecting for power, (environmental degradation . . . famine. . . global warming. . . overpopulation) the work seeks to open dialogue about what exactly power means to divergent populations around the globe.
