A little perspective

Under the moniker Grimeography, Tyler Grimes' (b. 1994 in Wilmington, DE) multidisciplinary approach ponders provocative paradoxes and ontologies in order to reconsider ones purpose in and perception of reality. Pulling influences from various schools of thought, his work alludes to ideas that may help one discover more about their experience of being-in-the-world. 
Grimes has a background in visual communications and recently earned a MFA in Photographic and Electronic Media from the Maryland Institute College of Art. He's been awarded research grants, admittance into artists residencies, had his work exhibited internationally, and has been a part of award-winning film productions. His writings and pedagogy place him in positions where he regularly lectures on media/communication theory, philosophy, production techniques, and aesthetics. He is currently entertaining doctoral studies at the University of Colorado, Boulder; as to further his research-based practice at the intersection of media-ecology, cognitive science, and mindfulness-awareness practices. 
Through various mediums, my research toys with speculative and mystical notions of the 'experience of experience' and how technological mediation may influence our ecological awareness of self in relation to the environment. This intrigue extends into questioning quotidian cartographies of the relations between objects (physical and immaterial, human and non-human) by harvesting alternative sources of Truth beyond how it is often constructed, disseminated and perceived. My work hopes to move towards a post-humanistic ecology which portrays a realer reality through exploring a progressive consumption of dogma, diet, and media by manifesting self-reflective and immersive experiences. 
My work is also informed by experimental, metaphorical and sometimes literal interviews with the environment itself as if to ask "how it feels" about it's experience. I aim to notion towards a possible sentient and animistic environment, as proposed by indigenous epistemologies, by faming the self as a liminal and non-dual medium in relation to its environment. This research carries me, as I see these motifs, the language that is enfolded within the discourse of, and our perception of such as paramount in today's media-saturated and environmentally fragile world.
