Andy Vogt grew up in the suburbs of Washington DC. He earned his BFA from Carnegie Mellon University concentrating in Intermedia, a program focused on time based media, performance and installation.
While at CMU he received a Student Undergraduate Research Grant to photographically document elements of nationalism in pre-EU eruope. More recently his photographs have appeared in Wired, Rolling Stone and Spin magazines as well as the covers of several albums produced by independent record labels. (a website of vintage photographs can be found here)
He is a founding member of Operation Re-Information (ORI), a science+information / art performance collective that championed the repurposing of existing information and the resultant product: reinformation. Throughout the 1990's ORI toured nationally, recorded several cds and developed it's own performance software. ORIs archives can be found here.
Vogt's sculptural work has been exhibited most recently at Eli Ridgway Gallery, Luggage Store Gallery, 3020 Laguna in Exitum, Electric Works Gallery, the San Francisco Museum of Craft and Design, Southern Exposure and Headlands Center for the Arts in Sausalito, CA where he was an artist-in-residence.
