Mac Pierce is an artist working in the various mediums of technology: coding, 3D printing, data automation, and cryptography. He creates objects and installations which examine the meaning of information, how it is perceived, interpreted, and distributed. The works he creates attempt to expose the intermediation that technological structures use to present information, and to alert the viewer to the distortions present in those structures.
