Alex Pearl makes: mini epic films, video
installations, games, photographs, objects, blogs and books. Much of Pearl's
work makes a nod toward the structures and images of Science Fiction and the
idea of the artist as evil-genius or crackpot-scientist always lurks in the
background. He is now based between Manchester Metropolitan University and
FACT, Liverpool, studying for a PhD that looks at a New Materialist take on
mechanical breakdown and anthropomorphism.
