  • Michael Salter’s work studies popular visual culture. He researches
    and analyzes all media and mass communication, and his creative study
    addresses the cognitive influence on people by these sources. Salter’s
    research is sensitive to the vast technologies, sources and
    motivations that illustrate the world we live in. His work is the
    constant investigation of visual function. Throughout his career he
    has eagerly explored every media and application possible to better
    understand the visual language and its power. His installations
    include drawing, sculpture, kinetic sculpture, animation, video and a
    variety of digital processes. Salter’s work has been exhibited
    internationally, including The Southeastern Center for Contemporary
    Art, Lump Gallery/Projects, Ambrosino Gallery, Black Market Gallery,
