Glenn Kaino is a Los Angeles-based conceptual artist who draws on his undergraduate education in computer science and formal training as a sculptor. He engineers large-scale installations and site- or situation-specific sculptural works, which are infused with sociopolitical commentary, pop culture issues, and interdisciplinary references. Kaino differentiates himself by integrating subject matter peripheral to art into his practice, namely digital media, and his career is a balancing act between the worlds of art and technology.
