Michael Marshall is the founding director of the Social Ecology Studio, a collaborative research space with a mission of engaging issues of sustainability and resiliency through arts engagement in collaboration with other disciplines and community members. He also serves as Associate Director of Curriculum and a Professor of Studio Arts at the University of Georgia, in Athens. For the past fifteen years his personal work has explored the intersections of science and the left brained sensibility of intuition and emotion, a mirror of his undergraduate degrees in Physics and Studio Art. For much of that time his primary medium was photography, ranging from delicate platinum prints to mixed media constructions of digital printing, encaustic and wood. His most recent works emphasize an engagement with community in which he facilitates dialogue and supports community interaction.
