Ethan X. Clarke is an artist and visual anthropologist who earned his degree from UC Santa Cruz, graduating summa cum laude. His primary areas of study are war and conflict, art and visual culture, technology, and evolutionary biology, with expertise in design, art, applied anthropology, social sciences and their real world utilization. “I have written extensively on the interplay between created culture (technology, media etc), and collective cultural identity (history, politics etc), as well as humanity’s ever present coevolution with technology and our transhuman future. Additionally, I have produced numerous multimedia artworks which confront similar themes.” You can find him and his art and design work on Instagram @Lucid_Pixel_Consulting
