Ryan Christopher Clarke is a tonal geologist from the Northern Gulf Coast who “notices the passage of time” as both a trained sedimentologist and artist-researcher. As co-editor at dweller electronics, a group dedicated towards “providing afrologic counterpoint within an otherwise eurologically dominant music industry.”, he’s interested in how land and music communicate with one other. He is a member of the American Geosciences Union, a co-recipient of the Allied Media Critical Minded Grant, and is currently studying ethnomusicology at Tulane University in New Orleans, LA.

Eyebeam models a new approach to artist-led creation for the public good; we are a non-profit that provides significant professional support and money to exceptional artists for the realization of important ideas that wouldn’t exist otherwise. Nobody else is doing this.
